OWASP San Antonio August Meeting: Single Sign On (SSO)

The OWASP San Antonio chapter will be having their August meeting Wednesday August 23rd, 2006 from 11:30am through 1:00pm.

Topic: Selecting a Single Sign-On Solution


Scattered software applications with differing security policies are a bane of today’s IT departments, consuming a large chunk of support and maintenance budget. Single Sign-On is one of the technical controls available to CIOs and CSOs for providing security in depth to a corporation while reducing maintenance costs. In this talk I will walk-through a typical SSO implementation from making a case for SSO to deploying and maintaining the SSO process. Multiple SSO architectures will be presented and merits and demerits of each of the architectures will be discussed. Commercial offerings and open source SSO tools in this space are also presented.
