Identity Gateway

Simply Connect Applications, Devices and Services – From Yesterday to the Internet of Things

In the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy they have a handy little thing called a Babel Fish. Put it in your ear and you can instantly communicate with anything, anywhere in the galaxy. It’s quick and painless and works great. And that’s exactly how the ForgeRock Identity Gateway works too. It’s a simple, standards-based approach to extend access to web applications, application programming interfaces (APIs), and devices and things.

A perfect complement to our access management system or as a stand-alone gateway, our Identity Gateway, part of the ForgeRock Identity Platform, provides a flexible policy enforcement point to support your current environment while migrating towards a modern, standards-based platform. So you can connect digital assets across your ecosystem, with minimal-to-no changes.

Prevent Data Breaches: Making Sure The Algorithms Work

An identity platform like ForgeRock is the backbone of an enterprise, with a view of all apps, identities, devices, and resources attempting to connect with each other. This is a very nice position to gather rich log identity data to use to prevent data breaches. In my previous blog, I discussed how we detect data breaches using identity logs.

Blockchain: A Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)

My mother just called me, wondering why a week doesn't go by that she doesn’t read about yet another Fortune 100 company announcing some Blockchain initiative. She asked me "What is this chain thing, and why are some people so enamored with it?"

What is a DLT?

While I didn't (and still don't) have a clear answer for the latter, for the former I started by first trying to explain (and highlight the merits) of a system that has these “DLT" characteristics:

There is a new IETF draft stream called JSON Web Token (JWT) Profile for OAuth 2.0 Access Tokens.  This is a very early 0 version, that looks to describe the format of OAuth2 issued access_tokens. Access tokens, are typically bearer tokens, but the OAuth2 spec, doesn’t really describe what format they should be.  They typically end up being two high level […]

Directory Services – Docker, Kubernetes: Friends or Foes?
2 months ago
Two weeks ago, at the ForgeRock Identity Live conference, I did a talk about ForgeRock Directory Services (DS) in the Docker/Kubernetes (K8S) world, trying to answer the question whether DS and Docker/K8S were friends or foes. Before I dive into the question, let me say that it’s obvious that our whole industry is moving to the Cloud, and that Docker/Kubernetes […]
