As a lot of people know, much of my last year has been spending time away from my portal / BI beginnings and spending more time in the Identity Management space. This year at Oracle World, I’ll be presenting on one of Oracle’s new IdM products Oracle Adaptive Access Manager (OAAM). This product was an acquisition from an Indian company by the name of Bharosa, the Hindi word for trust. It really is a nice product, providing real time risk assessment for every user of your system, and provides authentication mechanisms, as strong as, or stronger than those expensive tokens everyone has. I think I’d got over a dozen at home from various clients who gave me one “just in case.” Those little buggers aren’t cheap. Anyways, over the next few days I’ll be digging into the new product. Going through the installation and configuration, running it against different applications and profiles and reporting back on what I find.
I really do like this product and its simplicity of deployment. Its nice to find something “simple” in the Oracle stack(s) to play with. Stay tuned.
