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.
