CG2007 Programme Information
Session Title Simplifying Security Policies by using model-driven engineering

Session Type Tutorial

Duration 75 minutes

Session Description

New security tools for central security policy management and for software modelling are available that greatly simplify security policy management. The combination of these tools can automatically generate central security policies for complex IT environments, which can be managed in new central, consistent policy management products that go way beyond traditional IAM. This presentation will address case studies of air traffic control in Europe and the US Naval Research Laboratory.
