WebSphere Security Overview - Part 1
WebSphere Platform (3)
Simon Kapadia; Alisdair Nottingham
This session will focus on the new security features introduced within WAS v6.1 and v7. \n<br><br>\nFirstly, Simon Kapdia will take attendees through the new security features that were introduced in version 6.1; the whole "secure by default" concept (and what it actually means); the new SSL certificate management which is a huge improvement on what there used to be; the SPNEGO TAI becoming part of the product; fine grained administrative access control via scripting; and some additional areas of interest.\n<br><br>\nAlasdair Nottignham will then discuss some of the main changes introduced within version 7, including but not limited to the new auditing framework and the concept of multiple security domains per cell.
