SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2015) - ForgeRock®, the leading open platform provider of identity management solutions, today announced that it is presenting and exhibiting as a Bronze Sponsor at RSA® Conference 2015, USA. ForgeRock executives and team members will be demonstrating the latest identity management solutions from ForgeRock, including what's new from the ForgeRock Identity Platform™ and the OpenUMA project at Booth #N3235. User-Managed Access (UMA) is an OAuth-based protocol that enables an individual to control the authorization of data sharing and service access done by others.

Eve Maler (@xmlgrrl), one of just a handful of judges for the first Crowdsourced Submissions at RSA Conference 2015, serves as ForgeRock's vice president of innovation and emerging technology and former Forrester principal analyst. She will share her expertise at the following panels:

First Session: On the Care and Feeding of Human and Device Relationships
Description:
We have relationships with humans, entities, and things. Our connections as relationships are multiplying. Who has the authority to confirm the validity of a relationship? How can we understand technical aspects of relationships? How will we manage billions of relationships? This session will focus on the technical aspects of the draft laws of relationships between people, entities, and things.
When: April 23, 2015 from 8 a.m. - 8:50 a.m. PT
Where: Moscone West | Room: 3008

Second Session: Use Context to Improve Your User Identification Odds
Description:
Authentication is correlation for high-quality identification. Our applications aren't achieving high quality, which impacts security, fraud rates, and brand management. If we went back to first principles and rebuilt our identification processes, we'd operate much more along the lines of contextual sensitivity and risk-based approaches.
When: April 23, 2015 from 10:20 a.m. - 11:10 a.m. PT
Where: Moscone West | Room: 3009

Third Session: Identithication: Convergence of Identity and Authentication - A Rock Opera
Description:
What could be more informative and entertaining than the industry's leading experts debating practical implications of the need for greater security around the new use cases for identity? Simple, have the panelists express their opinions in song as a modern rock opera. "Identithication" explores critical questions -- who are you, how are you sure, and how can you use identity, all set to song.
When: April 23, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. - 12:20 p.m. PT
Where: Moscone West | Room: 2002
