The CSA domain structure–even without the benefits of the guidance–at least serves as a concrete reminder of what’s behind the slogan. Have a close look at the guidance. Read it; think about it; disagree with it; change it–but in the end, make it your own. Then share your experienc...
I recently had a great, freewheeling discussion with Daniel Raskin, Sun&'s Chief Identity Strategist. Daniel runs the Identity Buzz podcasts. We talked about issues in identity and entitlement enforcement in SOA, compliance, and the problems you run into as you move into new environmen...
Somebody brought Anil’s tweet to our attention this week, and Jay Thorne, who leads our tactical group, put together a nice example of just how to do this using SecureSpan Gateways. URI templates are a simple idea to formalize variable expansion inside URI prototypes. A receiving syste...
Here at Layer 7, we’ve been really excited about Amazon’s Relational Data Service (RDS) ever since they announced it last month. RDS is basically a managed mySQL v5.1 instance running in the Amazon infrastructure. The point of RDS to provide another basic service that we al...

Ah, the reuse question. My thoughts are here.
I had a discussion with Wayne Rash the other day about security in cloud computing. He followed up with an excellent article in eWeek with the provocative title Is Cloud Computing Secure? Prove It. I’d encourage you to have a look; Wayne spoke to a number of well-known people in ...
My answer is here.
We were at this week’s RedHat Summit/JBoss World show in Chicago to announce that the SecureSpan line is now fully certified against the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform. We’ve seen increasing use of JBoss in our engagements, so this endorsement is important for both Layer 7 a...
