Cloud Computing and "Identity 2.0"

It's OK, the Use of 2.0 Seems Very Legit in This Context

Opening Keynote at Cloud Expo

"Enterprises continue to expand the use of cloud computing, and particularly software-as-a-service applications (SaaS), to achieve operational performance enhancements and efficiencies. Implementation of these technologies introduces several challenges related to identity management, such as administration and delegation of account authentication and authorization. A new approach to identity is required to ensure the continued growth and success of cloud computing: we call this Identity 2.0."

So it seems to me there's a legitimate use of the "2.0" thingie with this description, which comes from Cloud Expo session abstract on the topic of identity management within Cloud Computing architectures. The session will be presented by Fran Rosch, Senior VP of Authentication Product Management at Verisign.

He elaborates as follows: "One of the most critical challenges is the need to accurately identify and manage users of these services. Yet at the same time, users are demanding greater control, convenience, and security."

"The challenges faced by a greater emphasis on the cloud are ones of both centralization and de-centralization: the centralization of computing resources combined with the decentralization of identity, authentication and authorization. Identity 2.0's challenge is how to cope with these two competing forces while avoiding the pitfalls of the past. Is Identity 2.0, therefore, prepared for an explosion of cloud computing, or do we need some other model?"

This is the kind of serious hashing out of issues that is ongoing with Enterprise Cloud Computing. I am personally looking forward to this session, and I hope for a spirited Q&A afterwards!

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
