Oracle Simplifies SOA Security

Whilst searching for news articles this evening about the latest Critical Patch Update July 2005 I found this article by Darryl K. Taft posted today 13 July and titled "Oracle Simplifies SOA Security". It starts by saying that Oracle have announced today an integrated business process platform intended to simplify the security of SOA and Web services. The article talks about a tight integration between the BPEL process manager and the Oracle web services manager to provided end-to-end security and management. This is a very interesting news item and it says that this new initiative should help provide secure web services without hard coding security policies, location transparency, transformations and version control. The article goes on to talk about the fact that Oracle are also stealing the march in the identity management area with its recent purchase of Oblix. It goes on to talk about seven integrators who have signed up to Oracles new identity management product included as a core component of Oracle Fusion. These seven integrators used to work with Oblix.

As I said an interesting news item for Oracle and security.
