Oracle Unveils First Phase of Oracle® Identity Management 11g

Industry’s First Service-Oriented Security Approach to Identity Management

Washington, D.C. – July 1, 2009

News Facts

As part of today’s Oracle® Fusion Middleware 11g launch, 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 the industry’s first Service-Oriented Security foundation. As a comprehensive declarative security framework Oracle Platform Security Services allows developers to easily build security into their applications and deploy them into a centralized identity management framework.
Oracle Directory Services features a newly integrated administration console – Oracle Directory Services Manager – to manage and configure 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 significant 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 now 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, thereby demonstrating how user-driven, identity-enabled applications can interoperate across networks, devices and regions.
Oracle is also announcing Oracle Identity Analytics, an integrated audit and compliance solution. Oracle Identity Analytics provides rich compliance dashboards, along with intelligent analytics, by aggregating identity data from multiple enterprise systems, applications, and network monitoring solutions into an Identity Warehouse.

Added Integration with Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g – The Foundation for Application Security

Oracle Identity Management 11g delivers single sign-on and access management for all Oracle Fusion Middleware products including Oracle WebCenter Suite, Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle WebLogic Suite, and Oracle ADF and ADF Desktop Interface, as well as for Oracle Enterprise Manager, through the integration of Oracle Access Manager and Oracle Platform Security Services.
The suite strengthens integration with Oracle Fusion Middleware, including new common components, such as a modern, unified user-interface based on AJAX/JSF technologies, shared infrastructure services for encryption, credential management, security policy and meta-data management, auditing and systems management.
The added integration between Oracle Identity Management and Oracle Fusion Middleware provides greater flexibility in deploying Applications in an operational environment, helps streamline compliance and controls enforcement, and enables reduced management and operational costs.
Partners can also leverage Oracle Identity Management 11g to declaratively build security into applications and automate the integration and deployment of applications into security infrastructures. This is a critical benefit for all partners who build and extend enterprise applications.
