Stephen has lead multiple organizations to develop email strategies, domain management and authentication strategies, as well as remote access strategies.

**Dan Blum - Security Architects will discuss:

“Building a Unified Authorization Framework with RBAC and ABAC”

• RBAC- (Role Based Access Control)

• ABAC- (Attribute Based Access Control)

This presentation will show you an ABAC design case study from a large Financial Services Organization that required authorization solutions for a complex of approximately 40 applications, that comprise a mix of custom-developed, COTS, Cloud-based systems and databases, some core components are being redeveloped to work within centralized runtime policy decision point (PDP) the solution must also provide admin-time and policy management for groups and roles used in much of the current software.

Discover how a “unified field” of ABAC-based approaches can blend roles, groups, attributes from subjects, resources, and context into a practical authorization solution for many new, existing, and cloud applications. Authorization frameworks comprise run-time policy enforcement, administration-time policy models, and IAM governance. Easy to manage from the bottom up, the problem is that groups tend to sprawl.

Turning to RBAC, some organizations have a good set of positional roles, but others don't. RBAC easily succumbs to role proliferation if practitioners layer too many special cases and exceptions onto the model. Fortunately, ABAC models can blend roles, groups, attributes from subjects, resources, and context into a unified framework.

Bio on Dan Blum - Is an internationally recognized expert in security, privacy, cloud computing and identity management. Dan leads and delivers consulting projects spanning multiple industries. Dan -Formerly a Golden Quill Award-Winning VP and Distinguished Analyst at Gartner. Dan contributed to and led projects such as; Cloud Security and Privacy Assessments, Security Organization and Risk Management Framework. Dan has also consulted on Technical Security Engagements in all areas of Data Protection domains including; Enterprise Authorization, DLP, Privileged Access Management, and Encryption/Key Management.

We will also have an open discussion forum for our members to discuss and exchange IAM challenges and ideas.

Key Takeaways:

The RBAC/ABAC continuum – it’s not either or, it’s about both approaches. Don't hype the "ABAC" - success stories, pitfalls, and lessons learned. Create "Economies of Context" through well-designed identity abstraction layers, object models, and application taxonomies Cloud-friendly patterns, tokens, and security considerations “Dynamic Provisioning” of static (RBAC-based) ACLs: A real alternative?
