Oracle announced the availability of the first components of Oracle Identity Management 11g including Oracle Platform Security Services, Oracle Internet Directory 11g, Oracle Virtual Directory 11g, and Oracle Identity Federation 11g.
Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS), a new layer for security services available through Oracle Fusion Middleware, delivers a Service-Oriented Security foundation. As a security framework Oracle Platform Security Services enables developers to build security into their applications and deploy them into a centralized identity management framework.
The new middleware features:
- Oracle Directory Services features a newly integrated administration console
- Oracle Directory Services Manager manages and configures LDAP directories, virtual-directories and meta-directories from a single point. It also features new wizards to help accelerate directory deployments by simplifying tasks such as sizing, tuning, and replication.
- Oracle Web Services Manager and Oracle Access Manager have enhancements to provide integrated access control including message encryption, identity propagation, and policy management for Web-based applications and Web services in a heterogeneous, multi-vendor environment.
- Oracle Identity Federation features the Universal Federation Framework, extending connectivity to a broad set of protocols including SAML 2.0, Microsoft CardSpace, Liberty, WS-Federation, and more.
Oracle Identity Federation 11g has also passed Liberty Alliance SAML 2.0 Interoperability Testing, demonstrating how user-driven, identity-enabled applications can interoperate across networks, devices and regions.
Oracle also announced Oracle Identity Analytics, an integrated audit and compliance solution that provides compliance dashboards, along with intelligent analytics, by aggregating identity data from multiple enterprise systems, applications, and network monitoring solutions into an Identity Warehouse.
