About CA World
CA World is CA Technologies' signature customer event. The conference is the largest global gathering of CA Technologies customers, partners, and IT leaders. More than 5,000 IT professionals from 65 countries attended CA World 2011!
Overview of Session
CoreBlox and Travelport will present an overview of their CA SiteMinder and Virtual Directory implementation that enables several key business drivers for Travelport, including Federation, efficient user provisioning, and consolidated user profiles. In addition, the technology supports 3rd party access to Travelport APIs. Travelport provides an identity service that supports internal and external applications. Their applications connect buyers and sellers through agency, online and corporate travel channels.
Instead of an agent-based approach, CA SiteMinder is used as a web service end-point for performing Policy Decision Point (PDP) actions. The CA SiteMinder PDP service provides authentication, authorization, session and concurrency management, password services and identity virtualization. These components serve as a backbone for web service transactions facilitated by the B2B Gateway device and for Travelport's web-based portals.
