SOA security needs to be by design, not as an afterthought. This session will demonstrate implementing Message Interceptor Gateway security pattern with WSO2 ESB, WSO2 WSAS and WSO2 Identity Server – together with the OpenID/Information Cards integration pattern at the front end. The Message Interceptor Gateway pattern provides a single entry point and allows centralization of security enforcement for incoming and outgoing messages. Further, this session explores adding authentication and fine grained authorization for web services. If you’ve been looking for an open source alternative to Microsoft Geneva, this session is for you.
The president of your committee is doing most of the work and none of the management. The secretary hasn’t written the minutes for any of the meetings for the last 6 months (you wrote the last 4 agendas on the day of the meeting). The treasurer can’t access the bank account, and you haven’t heard from your publicity officer since you started planning the big event. Welcome to the fun of volunteer communities!
Communities form around points of interest and commonality, but this doesn’t mean that everyone in the community has the same interests or even much in common with each other. Rarely does this come to the fore as clearly as when you gather together with a group of people, form a volunteer committee and try to achieve something great! In a perfect world, these committees would work smoothly with no excess over-head and awesome events would just fall out like clock-work.
The real world is far from perfect. The people in your committee are volunteering their time, effort and resources to make something happen, yet their skills probably lay in entirely different arenas. For example, by day they might be a developer, not a treasurer; or a systems architect but not a project manager (president). Your fellow committee members may also have conflicting ideas as to what their position means; and they almost certainly have different motivations for participating in the first place.
This talk is about building communities and surviving in committees, from small user groups to running big conferences. There will be some amusing anecdotes, stories from the trenches and a bunch of suggestions from war heroes on how some of these issues could have been avoided earlier.
