Cloud Computing Identity Standards Consortium

Ping Identity : 21 May, 2010  (Company News)
Ping Identity is taking part in a consortium brought together to fill the gaps in identity management standards to suit Cloud Computing environments
Ping Identity has announced its participation in a new OASIS international consortium formed to address the challenges posed by securing identities in the Cloud. The new OASIS Identity in the Cloud (IDCloud) Technical Committee will identify gaps in existing identity management standards and investigate the need for profiles to achieve interoperability within current standards. Committee members will perform risk and threat analyses on collected use cases and produce guidelines for mitigating vulnerabilities.

"Ping Identity firmly believes that proven Cloud identity security standards models will help accelerate the near term adoption and ensure the long term success of Cloud Computing ," said Ping Identity CTO Patrick Harding. "In joining OASIS IDCloud, we will share the insights we've gained through eight years of federation work with our 100+ SaaS partners to help create a safer path to the Cloud."

The IDCloud committee will profile an array of protocols (SAML, SPML, oAuth, Portable Contacts, etc.) that can be used to solve identity management issues related to Cloud Computing . The resulting gap analysis, use cases and product guidelines will serve as a best practices guide for SSO, provisioning, APIs, access and audit for the Cloud.

"Ping Identity and others on the OASIS IDCloud Technical Committee are taking a pragmatic stance to resolve the most pressing challenges presented by Cloud-based services adoption, and lay the foundation for a sustainable approach," said Steve Coplan, Senior Analyst with The 451 Group's Enterprise Security Practice. "We anticipate that the resulting IDCloud profiles will enable a consistent set of policies that will do the job of encapsulating business logic across multiple domains."

Participation in the IDCloud Technical Committee is open to all interested parties, including enterprises that provide or use identity management in a Cloud Computing infrastructure. Archives of the Committee's work will be accessible to both members and non-members, and OASIS will invite public review and comment.
