Join NIST and this January 2020 for an interactive conference, “Identity Management and Access Control in Multi-Cloud,” to be held at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD. We’ll be navigating the future of Zero Trust in multi-cloud environments through the strategic integration of identity management, access control, and service mesh architecture.

Highlights will include:

    • Jan. 22 An optional, half-day training on the basics of Istio and Envoy
    • Jan. 23-24 Conference proceedings, including keynotes from Varun Talwar (CEO, Tetrate), Nicolas Chaillan (CSO, Air Force), and André Mendes (CIO, Department of Commerce)

This one-and-a-half-day event will bring together federal government policymakers and leaders from across the government, identity and access management thought leaders, and cybersecurity experts to address existing threats and vulnerabilities, return control back to users, and understand flexibilities to better secure the infrastructure. We will highlight emerging practices to inform use cases and discuss options for identity and access management in use in the commercial sector that can translate to the federal government.

Speakers will include David Ferraiolo, Joshua Roberts, Ramaswamy Chandramouli, Ronald Ross and Scott Rose of NIST; Stephen Naumann of GSA, Zack Butcher and Ignasi Barrera of Tetrate, and more to be scheduled.

These discussions will unpack how Istio can be used to bring modern security to enterprises. We’ll demystify service mesh architecture and the Next Generation Access Control standard to exploit the opportunities outlined in the draft 800-207 NIST guideline.
