Sarah Mees, Novell’s senior product marketing manager for identity and security management, reports:The Digital ID World Conference (DIDW) is in full swing here in Santa Clara, CA. It’s a one-of-a-kind event focused exclusively on exploring identity issues from every angle. In its 5th year, DIDW gets the who’s who of the identity community and this year is no different: platinum sponsors include HP, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun and, of course, Novell. We’re showcasing our broad identity and access management portfolio, but we are focusing on the hottest topics in the identity world these days HSPD-12, federation and open source identity services.Today we announced enhancements to our Identity Assurance solution, designed to make it easier for federal agencies to meet HSPD-12 requirements. With the October 27th deadline for issuing Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards to all employees and contractors fast approaching, this is a timely topic for federal agencies. It’s also an opportunity for enterprise customers that have similarly challenging physical and logical access requirements to take note Novell’s Identity Assurance solution delivers benefits for you too. Speaking of benefits, the ability to deliver seamless, secure access with a single, comprehensive access management solution is resonating well with attendees. The pre-release of Novell Access Manager has been very well received and the evaluation kits we have at the show are in high demand be sure to stop buy and pick one up if you are here, they are going fast!We’re also talking about Bandit at DIDW and the project continues to draw interest from developers and end users alike. In particular, we get a lot of questions about how Bandit and the Higgins project are related and we’ll be talking about this in more detail tomorrow as part of a panel with IBM and Higgins. For a nifty architectural view of how all this works together, check out the Bandit high-level architecture and design page.The last thing to note about our participation at this event is that we are so pleased to have the support of our customer Continuum Heath Partners. CSO/CTO Ken Lobenstein is participating in a panel discussion today titled Questions we know we should asked and Continuum’s experiences and lesson’s learned are sure to be valuable to this audience.
