Lessons Learned During Our Migration from Legacy IAM to ForgeRock – Identity Summit London

Zalando is a publicly traded e-commerce company with more than 16 million active customers in 15 European markets. These customers speak many different languages, have different tastes in products and styles, prefer different payment and shipping methods—and require non-stop innovation. Until very recently, our focus on identity and access management has been somewhat unclear—leading to inconsistencies that our explosive growth couldn’t sustain indefinitely. With the adoption of a tech management strategy called Radical Agility, which emphasizes autonomy and trust, we’ve not only rethought the way we build our systems, but also changed our perception of IAM. Following the motto “You build it, you run it,” our newly formed, autonomous teams are now responsible end-to-end for their own applications – which means they are also entrusted with securing them. In this talk, Zalando software engineers Rodrigo Reis and Igor Ramadas will describe our transition to a cloud-based infrastructure that still supports communication with legacy systems. They will show how to enable secure communications to services that weren’t originally designed with security in mind. Finally, they will discuss how they’re using automation to seamlessly deploy Zalando’s new infrastructure, talk about the challenges they’ve faced along the way, and describe their solutions.

The Identity Broker as Driver for Growth – Identity Summit London

One of the most famous brands and by far the biggest telco provider in Switzerland, Swisscom takes a very pro-active approach to security and creating a trusting environment for its customers. Because Swisscom provides such a broad range of services – landline and mobile phone, mobile payments, cloud data hosting, health records storage and so much more – it required powerful Identity and Access Management (IAM) capabilities. The company’s security vision and overall goal was all about data protection, privacy and sharing, yet also to give subscribers the power to determine what to share, with whom and through the channel of their choice. To implement this vision, the company built out its own Swisscom Cloud architecture with an Identity Broker (IDB) component powered by ForgeRock technologies. The intent was that the identity broker would fulfill the following basic requirements: - Single point of authentication for cloud users. - Single point of integration of external IdPs - Single point of authorization for protected web APIs The goal for Swisscom was to be able to offer one ID Broker for all services, so that subscribers essentially would be able to “Bring Your Own Identity” (BYOI). If not done this way, each application or service offered by Swisscom would have required a connection with each IDP. By implementing a ForgeRock solution, Swisscom was able to reduce costs spent on administration and significantly upgrade ease of use for the customer base, while also increasing sharing options across service offerings.

Identity Summit 2015: ForgeRock and the Graph: A Match Made for IRM

Dave Bennett, Identity Solution Designer and Graph Evangelist, Nulli The exponentially expanding ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) poses challenges of performance, scalability, and adaptability on a level not yet seen in the Internet Age. Coupled with increased consumer and regulatory requirements for security and privacy, the new demands placed on traditional systems will be extraordinary. Support for this changing paradigm requires an evolution of identity and access management systems to support a dynamic, risk-based decision-making process. Successful solutions will require IAM systems to rapidly process complex identity relationships consisting of digital identity, trusted attributes, and contextual information of both the user and the target resource. This has to hold true whether the ”user” or ”resource” is a person, system, or IoT device. Decisions need to be made based on real-time information, not on denormalized data compiled on a periodic basis. At Nulli, we believe Identity Relationship Management systems must evolve beyond traditional LDAP and SQL databases to support this evolving myriad of users and resources; it is time for graph. Graph databases elevate the importance of the relationship by persisting them in the datastore as objects unto themselves. This distinction is very important in our increasingly connected world. Attend our session to see how ForgeRock interacts with the graph today.
