LA/SoCal Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Chapter Meeting

  • Sep 10, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This month's meeting will be at ReachLocal in Woodland Hills.  Come and join us as we branch out to the north for this meeting.  Food and parking will be provided.

Subject:  Single Sign On (SSO) for the Cloud - A single place to sign in for every application. A simple concept in theory, but in reality an enterprise headache. Just like a chinese finger puzzle, simple and fun, until you have both thumbs stuck and you realize you needed your thumbs to be able to get out of the fiendishly complex trap.  With SSO, the complexity comes from the fact that every company has a multitude of services that they use every day. E-mail, content management, intranet, code repositories, ticketing systems, monitoring software, expense reporting, etc. So as you get into an enterprise level SSO implementation, the scope and complexity grows with every new enterprise application. Hence the Chinese Finger Puzzle. Adding to that complexity is the tremendous growth in Cloud usage for company technologies. How do you maintain SSO between cloud and on premise technologies? And how do you do it in a scalable, secure manner?  The presentation with provide an overview of different SSO technologies (focusing on SAML standard) drawing on their strengths and drawbacks.  We will case study our own implementation and strategies going forward.

Speakers: Curt Jeppson has been working in Information Security for a decade in increasing roles of responsibility within the financial, marketing, e-commerce and technology industries. His technical certifications include the CISSP and PCI ISA. Mr. Jeppson has a Bachelors degree in Information Technology and a Masters degree in Information Security and Management. He currently works as the Information Security Engineering Lead at Reachlocal, Inc and also teaches classes in Cyber security at ITT Tech as an Adjunct Professor.  Prior to his IT careers he was an Infantry Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. 

Parking: Parking will be validated.  The parking garage entrance is on Owensmouth, just passed the Kate Mantalini's restaurant.

The CSA meets 10 times a year and we do not have meetings in July or December

    Reach Local is a GREAT host folks! So if you have any doubts, please do come by tonight. I have always enjoyed their hospitality.

    Also, SCALE 13x has opened up their call for presenters, so if you know anyone which would make a good presenter on Open Source topics ( Security or non-security ) please do encourage them to submit a proposal. At SCALE 13x we typically set up a community table for security meetups for the event, so CSA-LA folks please do start chatting with OWASP-LA and ISSA-LA about sharing the table space to promote our CSA-LA chapter.

    Thank You - Matti

    Jim Manico and I are joining forces and presenting a talk at OWASP OC on Sept 10 so I won't be able to make it. The new location is a lot more convenient and I'm looking forward to attending future events.

      You mean less convenient: Valley traffic is much worse than SM traffic - the numbers prove it.
