Lock the Front Door for Cloud Computing Security
VeriSign's Michael Denning to Discuss Identity Management at Cloud Expo in New York

VeriSign Session at Cloud Expo

Enterprises continue to expand the use of cloud computing, and particularly software-as-a-service applications (SaaS), to achieve operational performance enhancements and efficiencies. Implementation of these technologies introduces several challenges related to identity management, such as administration and delegation of account authentication and authorization. A new approach to identity is required to ensure the continued growth and success of cloud computing: we call this Identity 2.0.

One of the most critical challenges is the need to accurately identify and manage users of these services. Yet at the same time, users are demanding greater control, convenience, and security. The challenges faced by a greater emphasis on the cloud are ones of both centralization and de-centralization: the centralization of computing resources combined with the decentralization of identity, authentication and authorization. Identity 2.0's challenge is how to cope with these two competing forces while avoiding the pitfalls of the past. During this session, Fran Rosch will address whether Identity 2.0 is prepared for an explosion of cloud computing, or do we need some other model?

Michael Denning is the Vice President of VeriSign’s Infrastructure Assurance Services. This group includes the iDefense Security Intelligence Services that delivers comprehensive actionable intelligence to enterprise and public sector customers.

In 2009 the Infrastructure Assurance group launched VeriSign’s newest cloud based security product the VeriSign Internet Defense Network (VIDN). VIDN mitigates DDOS attacks before they enter the network with a combination of hardware and VeriSign’s intellectual property developed while defending the dot com and dot net DNS infrastructure. Mr. Denning has a B.S. in Engineering Management from the United States Military Academy at West Point and an M.B.A. from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.
