The Burton Group Interoperability Challenge

Gerry Gebel of the Burton Group discusses the need for an Interoperability Challenge and asks questions such as can enterprises really mix and match policy administration points and policy enforcement points from different vendors? Is the XACML RBAC Profile practical?

This feels like an opportunity for BEA, Vordel, CA, Oracle, IdentityEngines, LogLogic, Securent, IBM, OpenID and Sun to show interoperability at the XACML PAP and PDP layers while the likes of Intalio, Alfresco, Liferay, SugarCRM, Compiere, ServiceMix, Sonic, Documentum, Filenet and Microsoft all demonstrate their upcoming support for XACML PEP being incorporated into their various product lines.

I would especially love to see Gerry talk about the limitations of identity management tools and how entitlements approaches can compliment them. Hopefully, he could get the likes of Dick Hardt, Johannes Ernst, Pat Patterson and Conor Cahill to also talk about the role XACML could play within a federation...
