Identity-Driven SOA with Layer 7 & Sun Microsystems

Create a seamless path from SOA design to composition to secure management

Create a seamless path from SOA design to composition to secure management

 

When platform-independent Web services traverse multiple systems, providing reliable security and maintaining performance can be an enormous challenge. Sun and Layer 7 Technologies address this challenge by combining Layer 7 SecureSpan SOA Gateways with the Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (Java CAPS) and Java Identity Management Suite.

SecureSpan provides a centralized policy enforcement point for identity-driven SOA security operations, including client authentication, service-level authorization, message privacy and transaction integrity validation. It can be deployed as a proxy to Java CAPS to ensure centralized policy enforcement for all communications entering or leaving the SOA environment.
