Track: Projects, Applications, and Solutions
       Tuesday, June 26, 2007 -- 4:45PM-5:45PM

Title: "Ensuring Password Strength and Password Synchronization with
        OpenEAI Services and ESB"

Presenters:  Stephen Wheat, President, Open Integration Incorporated
             Tom Cervenka, Senior Developer Enterprise Architecture,
             University of Illinois
This presentation focuses on two new enterprise services:

1.) The password validation service to ensure adequate password strength

2.) The password synchronization service to synchronize passwords to applications that cannot for technical or political reasons participate in a single sign-on strategy.

Specific Features to be Demonstrated Include:

1.) A uPortal portlet for changing an enterprise password that uses the password validation services to provide keystroke-by-keystroke feedback on password strength.

2.) Propagating the selected password change to an LDAP server, uPortal, Sakai, and a data warehouse reporting account using the password change service.

3.) Writing a plug-in to plug a new system or type of application into the ESB to participate in password synchronization.

4.) How the University of Illinois is using this framework to synchronize enterprise passwords across three campuses with different single sign-on approaches.
