XACML workshops in San Francisco and Wash DC

February 19, 2010

Please join us in San Francisco or Washington DC for an XACML workshop.

“This is a two day XACML introduction course, including hands-on training. It will be provided by leading XACML experts with in-depth experience from some of the world’s largest XACML deployment projects. Based on their attendee experience, there will be a mix between high-level aspects and technical details. We cover best practices and discuss how you avoid common pitfalls in the deployment of an Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) solution. However, we also ensure you get a thorough understanding of the XACML request/response and policy languages. You will create and debug your own XACML policies and run access requests against them to verify that you get the response you expect.”

San Francisco, March 9-10

Washington DC, March 16-17

*** ALERT: These workshops have been rescheduled – dates TBD! ***

After nearly 10 years at Burton Group, I’ve decided to join Stockholm-based Axiomatics to lead their U.S. operations. Working at Burton was a wonderful experience that benefited me immensely personally and professionally. This has been an amazing time in the IdM industry, and hopefully we were able to instigate some positive changes along the way.

Joining Axiomatics gives me an opportunity to work on the supplier side of the industry – and be more actively engaged in helping enterprises solve problems! This job is going to pose lots of new challenges for me, but I look forward to all of it.  Babak and Erik and their team in Stockholm have created a great authorization platform based on XACML, so you can to hear a lot about that from me in the future…

I’ve started this blog so I can have an outlet for musings on identity topics, and other areas of interest. Thank you for all your support over the years and I look forward to working with you all in this new capacity.
