SAML Featured at RSA Conference

Netegrity to Discuss Next Generation of SAML at RSA Conference

Waltham, MA, USA. Febuary 20, 2004. RSA Conference 2004. Booth #1421.

Netegrity, Inc., a leading provider of identity and access management solutions, today announced that Prateek Mishra, Director of Technology and Architecture at Netegrity and co-chair of the OASIS SAML Committee, will deliver a presentation at the RSA Conference discussing the next version of SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). Mishra's presentation titled "SAML 2.0: Unified Foundation for Federated Security" will be presented as part of the RSA Conference Standards Track on Tuesday, February 24th at 4:15 pm PT. Netegrity will also be exhibiting at the RSA Conference (Booth #1421) where the company will showcase its identity and access management solutions, including Netegrity's provisioning solution, Netegrity IdentityMinder eProvision.

Mishra's presentation will discuss the new features of SAML 2.0 and how it brings together disparate efforts in order to create a single federated security umbrella. SAML 2.0 will build upon SAML 1.0 deployments and integrate with the enhanced functionality of the Liberty ID-FF (Identity Federation Framework) layers. In addition, Mishra will discuss the relationship between SAML 2.0 and other proposed standards, such as WS-Security, and how they jointly provide organizations with a trusted model to enable secure Web services and federation.

Netegrity was one of the original creators of the SAML specification and over the last three years has helped to drive industry adoption of SAML, including support for the SAML standard within both the Netegrity SiteMinder Web access management product and the Netegrity TransactionMinder Web services security product. The company also recently shipped Netegrity SiteMinder 6.0 which provides advanced federated security capabilities through enhanced support for SAML.

Prateek Mishra, Ph.D. has over ten years experience with enterprise-class distributed systems. He is Director of Technology and Architecture at Netegrity and works on strategy and standards. He was an editor of the SAML 1.0 specification and is co-chair of the OASIS SSTC (SAML) Committee and participates in the WSS (WS-Security) Committee. He has presented at numerous technology conferences, including RSA and the Burton Group Catalyst Conference.
