Security is a key aspect of any successful enterprise SOA solution which allows channels for internal and external parties to access business assets. Security measures should also enable other vital aspects of the solution such as
- Flexibility - By catering to new security requirements which arise with changing business policies
- Interoperability - By facilitating secure communication with heterogeneous systems which talk over different security protocols.
The Enterprise Service Bus is usually the entry point to an enterprise SOA solution. It is also the central place through which the incoming and outgoing messages flow, thus making it the most relevant location to enforce security measures of the solution.
In this webinar, we will go through the recurring problems and requirements in the space of identity, security and access control of a SOA solution along with the security patterns that can be applied to overcome them using the WSO2 ESB as a security gateway. We will take use cases found in an Healthcare SOA solution to illustrate these challenges and the corresponding solution patterns that can be designed to overcome them.
