Presentation: "Architecting the Ultimate Control Point- Advanced Cyber Threat Mitigation"

Time: Thursday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: City Room


Today’s architects and developers need to learn a new set of skills that enable projection of enterprise security policy beyond the network edge. These skills must combat external threats and include mastery of token exchange, service virtualization, and policy enforcement. In this session, Intel security expert Blake Dournaee describes each of these disciplines and how they can be applied using a security control point called a Service Gateway that spans .Net and/or Java based platforms on-premise or in the cloud. After outlining the basics, Blake constructs a sample Web Services threat model to show how access control and SAML can mitigate spoofing and elevation of privilege attacks. Then to deal with injection and snooping threats, Blake outlines content validation and encryption controls that must be applied. The end result demonstrates how to  decouple security logic from application servers to create, manage and enforce security policies using a Service Gateway.

Topics covered:

  • REST to SOAP mediation to put a secure RESTful façade on a SOAP service
  • Security policy construction
  • Building connectors to popular Cloud or SaaS platforms
  • Firewalling and content attack prevention
  • SAML Token Service validation and Digital Encryption
