WSO2 to Present Webinar on How to Build a Common Access Control Platform Using XACML and WSO2 Carbon Enterprise Middleware

Technical webinar will examine architectural best practices for controlling user access to systems and applications while addressing continual changes in business demands

Palo Alto, CA – November 12, 2013 – As enterprises’ business requirements continue to evolve, IT organizations are challenged with ensuring that their access control rules for systems, applications, and cloud services keep pace. To facilitate this effort, WSO2 will present a technical webinar exploring how to implement a robust and flexible access control platform by leveraging the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) and WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform.

The one-hour technical webinar, “Access Control Patterns and Practices with WSO2 Middleware Platform,” will run Thursday, November 14, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST. To learn more, visit

Access Control Patterns and Practices

The webinar is designed for IT architects and developers. It will begin by reviewing the demands placed on access control rules to be:

  • Defined to the point with accuracy.
  • Tested against real data before going into production.
  • Governed and monitored properly.
  • Managed and evaluated centrally.
  • Decoupled from the actual application logic.
  • Able to provide the scalability and flexibility to support change.

The session then will explore technologies and practices for meeting these requirements. These will include role-based access control (RBAC), attribute-based access control (ABAC), policy-based access control (PBAC), XACML reference architecture, XACML hierarchical resource profile, XACML multiple decision profile, and future trends in XACML. The webinar also will examine how IT professionals can build a common access control platform with the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform.

Leading the webinar will be Prabath Siriwardena, WSO2 director of security. Prior to his current role, Prabath chaired the WSO2 Integration Technologies Management Committee. He is a member of the OASIS Identity Metasystem Interoperability (IMI) Technical Committee (TC), OASIS XACML TC, and OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC. Prabath is also a member of the Apache Axis Project Management Committee (PMC). He has delivered talks at numerous international conferences.
