Security is the cornerstone of your application’s integrity and, consequently, you need to weave it throughout each layer, often in diverse ways. PicketLink, a JBoss Community project, allows you to evolve the security model of your application over time, keeping pace with the development cycle.
With PicketLink, you can start with a very simple configuration that applies an exclusive security blanket over the application, keeping out guests and establishing a basic identity for the user. You can then gradually mature the security infrastructure by adopting PicketLink’s declarative approach for defining fine-grained authorization rules that enforce contextual restrictions at the level of database records, database fields, object fields, and UI fragments. And PicketLink IDM provides a comprehensive, pluggable identity management solution that enables you to manage your users and roles.
In this session, PicketLink experts will demonstrate how to use PicketLink to secure your web application. They will do so by showcasing TicketMonster, an online ticket broker that provides access to events via an online booking application.
