Self-service password resets and strong authentication

Dmitry Kagansky is one of Quest's architect's and works out of our UK office. He's recorded a demo of a few of our products that I thought might be of interest to you:
  • Self-service password reset with Quest Password Manager
  • Self-service registration of a Defender one-time password (OTP) token
  • Integration of Quest Password Manager with Defender to enable an end-user to reset their password using their Defender token
It's a great demo that not only shows specific individual product capabilities but the advantages of the integration between these two Quest products.

Martin's top 10 IAM trends for 2009...

Martin Kuppinger's "top 10 trends for 2009". Not sure if this was in reverse order or not but you get the idea...
  • GRC as the business control layer of IAM
  • Growing maturity of Identity 2.0 approaches
  • Multi-purpose (smart)cards gain momentum
  • Context and versatility becoming reality - re: authorization
  • More IAM and GRC for the cloud. (Adoption of cloud services is held back by the immaturity of IAM and GRC for the cloud)
  • Portable identity information for social networks.
  • GRC going beyond IAM. (attestation, access controls)
  • First impacts of new electronic passports/ID cards. (Not in the US, eh?!)
  • Increasing service orientation in IAM and GRC.
  • Privacy is back - and there are more solutions.

European Identity Conference!

OK, just arrived at the EIC here in Munich that's put on by our friends at Kuppinger Cole. I ran into Joerg Resch at our booth so we had a few minutes to chat about the conference. He was very happy to report that registrations have exceeded their expecations. In fact, Joerg told me they had a great rush of last minute registrations right up until 1AM last night!

That's great news for a great conference. I'm looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting some new ones, too. If you are at the conference please drop by and say hello!

More posts over the next few days...
