Register for CA World '15 today: CA World ’15 - CA Technologies


We are planning some exciting and interesting Security Pre-Con sessions this year at CA World.  Here are the sessions that we are planning so far.  This is a great opportunity to do a deep dive on some aspects of the products that you have been using, or just to learn more about any of our solutions!

 

SCT13S Getting the Most Out of Your SSO Deployment  

Two of the most important areas of a successful CA SSO installation are performance and monitoring of the deployment. This session will cover these two topics in depth. The first half will focus on SSO Performance, following by SSO Monitoring (with a short break).  Come learn how to maximize your use of CA SSO.

 

SCX01E How to Leverage New Capabilities in the CA Identity Suite 

This session will highlight key new features of the CA Identity Suite, as well as details about the use of integrations with CA SSO and other CA Security products.  Come learn how to get the most out of your Identity Suite deployment

 

SCT12s  Developing secure mobile applications  

Learn how to easily embed identity and access management capabilities into your mobile apps with CA IAM Solutions (eg. Secure Cloud) and the Mobile API Gateway SDK.  The course will include a few instructor lead labs on the Android Development Framework.  We will conclude the session with a demonstration of how CA’s Identity and Access Management capabilities can assist iOS development. 

 

SCT13S Getting the most from your CA Advanced Authentication solution           

Join us for a hands-on guided session that will show you how to take advantage of all of the features of CA Advanced Authentication to help you provide both a better user experience and better security.  You’ll walk through behavioral profiling and rule-building to show you how you can achieve close to “zero-touch” authentication.  You will learn how to create meaningful reports and use that data to improve authentication effectiveness and convenience.  You will see several demos that highlight specific use cases for the product.  We will also be collecting your input and feedback on features and usability.

 

SCX02E Protecting your critical servers from careless or malicious Privileged Users        

This session will explore key capabilities of the CA Privileged Identity Management solution that can help you protect your critical servers from being abused by insiders and outsiders.  Capabilities that will be covered include breach prevention, privileged user containment, resource protection, application jailing, and trusted program execution.

Office Hours for CA Privileged Identity Manager: A Live Online Chat (Oct 14)

Hi all,

 

We are looking for participants to sign-up for the ca Securecenter Virtual Appliance Validation Program.

 

We are looking for early feedback to ensure this docker/kubernetes based technology is going to meet the needs of our customers as these container technologies become more mainstream.

 

There is no formal commitment here – spend as little or as much time as you want. If you have a spare hour, you will be able to spin up the ca Securecenter Virtual Appliance and get it running with either CA Directory 12.0.15 or CA Identity Manager 12.6.06. It is that easy and that is all the time you might want to invest at this time.

 

Please sign-up to the program at https://validate.ca.com (browse near the bottom of the list of open validation programs) and you will then receive simple instructions via email to get up and running asap.

 

There is also a YouTube channel that you can subscribe to that provides some easy to follow recordings to help you get started.

 

 

Some additional comments:

 

  • At this time, we have tested VMware Workstation and Oracle VirtualBox on Windows machines. If you are using VMware Fusion or Oracle VirtualBox on a Mac, we can’t guarantee that it will work on the Mac platform yet (Mac is a roadmap item).
  • At this time, we suggest just creating a single master for your initial playing. Move on to clustered deployments (with nodes) at a later time when we provide further information around clustering support.
  • Currently, it will take about 10 minutes for the CA Directory 12.0.15 GA solution to deploy and 45 minutes to deploy the CA Identity Manager 12.6.06 GA solution.
  • A sample configuration, ForwardInc, is provided for each and instructions are included in the draft documentation to amend that configuration to meet your own use case.
  • These deployment times will be getting reduced as the engineering teams optimize the size of the docker images that are pulled from the CA Security docker registry.
  • The engineering team will be looking to update the ca Securecenter Virtual Appliance download site with latest features approximately every few weeks following agile practices.
  • You will need to be registered on validate.ca.com to be informed when these new features become available.
  • For example, in due course, you will see CA Single Sign-On 12.52 and the CA Identity Suite 12.6.06 (SIGMA UI) added as deployable solutions to the appliance.

 

Thanks

 

Tommy
