CA rolls out security management architecture

Antony Savvas

Computer Associates has introduced its eTrust Security Management Architecture, for integrating authentication, authorisation and auditing mechanisms across multi-platform environments and applications.

CA said eTrust Security Management Architecture provides security, transparency and reliability for business transactions as they move across complex IT environments.

The software company has already released two eTrust identity and access management solutions that take advantage of the new architecture. Other solutions will support the architecture over time, said CA.

The execution of a typical business transaction involves multiple layers of applications and multiple underlying technologies including Web services, middleware and other systems.

Each of these technologies may use different security mechanisms for authentication, authorisation and auditing, which can cause problems.

ETrust Security Management Architecture addresses these problems by providing a common security "backbone" across all underlying technologies.

It uses open standards such as WS-Security, SAML, SPML, ISO-10181(AZNAPI), Kerberos, X.509, and SAF to enable true interoperability between diverse platforms and security mechanisms.
