Support for two of the most widely adopted security standards from the
OASIS international consortium are showcased at the RSA Conference in
Booth 3012 this week. The Key Management Interoperability Protocol
(KMIP) and the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) OASIS
Standards are being featured in two separate demonstrations involving
fourteen companies. These organizations provide solutions that offer
implementers a range of products backed by the assurance of
interoperability over time.
Interoperable communication between key management clients and key
management servers is the focus of the KMIP demonstration. Clients from
Cryptsoft, IBM, Quintessence Labs, and Thales e-Security communicate
with key management servers from Cryptsoft, HP, IBM, Quintessence Labs,
Thales e-Security, Townsend Security and Vormetric. Together, the
clients and servers demonstrate the full key management life-cycle
including creating, registering, locating, retrieving, deleting, and
transferring symmetric and asymmetric keys and certificates between
vendor systems. Support for multiple versions of KMIP is being
demonstrated, including the new KMIP 1.1 OASIS Standard, as well as KMIP
1.0 and KMIP 1.2 (currently under development).
The XACML demonstration shows how access control can be managed in
large-scale environments where resources are distributed and policy
administration is federated. Axiomatics, Boeing, Dell, Forgerock,
NextLabs, Oracle, and ViewDS show implementations of the XACML
Intellectual Property Control, Export Control-US, JSON and REST
Profiles. These profiles enable organizations to control the usage and
distribution of data according to resource properties such as Copyright,
Trademark, Proprietary, Export Control Classifications, and licensing
authorities, while using the latest communication protocols across
various platforms and applications. During the showcase, resource
attributes are obtained directly from metadata in the data objects
themselves and travel with the data objects.
Support for KMIP Interop
“OASIS KMIP delivers--2010 saw KMIP products in
development, 2011 brought products from the early adopters, 2012 showed
us deployed interoperability via KMIP was a reality, and in 2013 we’re
now seeing widespread industry adoption. As one of the most widely used
OEM suppliers of KMIP technology, Cryptsoft is committed to enabling
industry adoption of KMIP. Our SDKs and adaptors enable our clients to
both embrace KMIP and support existing non-KMIP solutions.”
Hudson, Chief Security Architect
“Participants in the OASIS
interoperability booth are demonstrating their commitment to the KMIP
standard, and Thales is delighted to showcase keyAuthority, its own high
assurance key manager. These types of events give customers confidence
to develop their own key management strategies and act as a catalyst for
the enterprise key management market.”
-- Bob Lockhart, Chief
Solutions Architect Key Management, Thales e-Security
"We are delighted to be demonstrating
interoperable key management in the OASIS booth at RSA Conference. KMIP
is gaining rapid adoption as the industry standard protocol for key
management between an encryption client and a key management server, and
Vormetric is pleased to take part in this interoperability effort."
Ashvin Kamaraju, VP of Product Development, Vormetric
Support for XACML Interop
“As Axiomatics provides editorial support for
XACML 3.0, we’re very happy to see OASIS organizing this interop to
demonstrate some of the latest features of XACML 3.0 including the new
JSON and REST profiles. The JSON and REST profiles will make
XACML-driven authorization available to a broader developer audience
that prefer lighter weight encoding and transport formats.”
Gerry Gebel, President Axiomatics Americas
“Protecting intellectual property and properly
authorizing access to export-controlled data are key concerns for
enterprise computing security organizations. Our EC-US and IPC profiles
provide standardized attribute names/values for creating access control
policies. Utilization of metadata as resource attributes affords
enhanced mechanisms for IP protection and export control enforcement.
Our product, CIPHER, scans files and tags them with EC-US and IPC
metadata, which can then be evaluated by XACML PDPs at runtime.”
John Tolbert, Security Strategist, The Boeing Company
“Oracle’s Cloud, Enterprise Applications and Oracle
Fusion Middleware technologies rely on Oracle Entitlements Server, our
XACML-based authorization solution, making it easier to manage identity
in today’s social, mobile and cloud environments. Oracle’s complete
platform approach to identity management is entirely standards-based. We
are committed to open standards and interoperability because we believe
it is the only scalable and sustainable approach to identity.”
Marc Boroditsky, vice president of Identity Management, Oracle

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
