SOAs promise a dramatic improvement in IT responsiveness to business needs. Key within this value proposition is the idea that service consumption policies can be configured instead of coded. While the opportunities to positively impact both the top-line and bottom-line are enormous, so are the issues of SOA management, with security being a primary focus of concern. How are users and identities managed? How does existing security infrastructure play in the new world, and how do you bridge from an existing environment to an SOA? How can an enterprise provide auditable yet efficient governance of the publishing, consumption, provisioning, and monitoring of SOA activities? This session will present a real-world look at the SOA landscape, a deep look at the security implications that it embodies, and some emerging best practices in the areas of Web services security, SOA policy, and governance.
