Identity and Access Management for Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing

Developing New Services from the Building Blocks
Dr Igor Faynberg and Dr Hui-Lan Lu, Alcatel-Lucent, USA

Identity and Access Management has become the centrepiece of Web 2.0 development. Single sign-on through identity federation and social sharing through dynamic delegated access are increasingly considered by service providers. Meanwhile, cloud computing has emerged as a viable technology and created new opportunities—and concerns—for all stakeholders. This tutorial provides a detailed introduction to the technological foundation of Identity and Access Management, addressing all major existing—as well as developing—authentication and authorization mechanisms suitable for the Web and Cloud. It also demonstrates how to mix and match these building blocks creatively to build new service enablers, such as OpenID and OAuth.

Next-Generation-Networks to Future Internet (NGN2FI) Evolution

Requirements and Technologies for a Seamless FI Service Platform
Thomas Magedanz and Julius Müller, Technical University of Berlin, Germany

This half day tutorial will provide an overview about Next Generation Mobile Broadband Network Evolution towards the Future Internet (FI) starting from Intelligent Networks (IN) passing IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) over Evolved Packet Core (EPC) on to the FI. Service control mechanisms of 3GPP and non-3GPP on different layers are presented and evaluated in this scope. The tutorial will focus on the potential and capabilities of EPC and discusses the possibilities of voice delivery over LTE.

Starting from here the tutorial looks at the emerging Future Internet, such as GENI in the US, G-Lab in Germany, FIRE and Future Internet Public-Private Partnership (FI-PPP) in Europe and Akari in Japan. We will present current visions and research topics related to FI through Internet-of-Things (IoT), Internet-of-Services (IoS) as well as Network-of-the-Future (NoF), Machine-to-Machine (M2M), service-, functional- and cross-layer composition.

We will present new emerging operator and 3rd party provider controlled services, which benefit from these new powerful access network technologies and change the classic operator-dominated value chain. Requirements, challenges and opportunities of the total convergence from network-, control- and service layer will also be evaluated.

The tutorial terminates with an introduction into toolkits and laboratories from Fraunhofer FOKUS and Technical University Berlin enabling rapid Next Generation Mobile Network prototyping for academic and industry research, namely the OpenEPC (www.openepc.net), G-Lab DEEP (www.g-lab-deep.de) as well as the NGN2FI (www.ngn2fi.org) and FUSECO-Playground (www.fuseco-playground.org) enabling comprehensive prototyping in the context of academic and industry research.

Smarter Living for Telco Customers

Integrating Residential Sensor Networks with Cloud Services to Create N-Play Opportunities

The formerly separated worlds of home automation, consumer electronics, IT and communication technology are merging. In theory. Connecting the various devices to be jointly controlled by particular applications, offering unified interaction concepts and combining the individual functionalities to a complete solution is an issue that hasn't been solved satisfyingly until today.

Furthermore residential telecoms customers are increasingly familiar with the concept of having centralised control over multiple aspects of family life. The home computer is prevalent, in a number of guises, as is the mobile phone and control over numerous types of entertainment technology, with the ubiquitous remote spreading steadily to other devices and appliances. Control is key against this background – it’s accepted and now expected – with consumers pressing for ever-greater control of devices in the home environment.

Combined with the growing concerns over energy costs and security, and the tendency towards longer life spans, this situation is generating new opportunities for telecoms operators and utility service providers.

A number of propositions can be created, through the integration of multiple sensing and control devices in residential environments, and by using cloud-based services for their management and monitoring. The vertical market opportunities include assisted living – helping and monitoring elderly relatives living alone; security and surveillance – local or remote; energy efficiency monitoring and control, and the remote control of domestic appliances.

What are the limits to smart-device integration in this context?
How widely should these capabilities be embedded in existing domestic hardware?
How far should we take the scope of residential networks?

This workshop will explore how suppliers, integrators and service providers can maximise and benefit from these opportunities, and how technology designers and developers can best contribute to the mix.

  • Communication and control protocols – wired and wireless
  • Integrating smart devices in domestic environments
  • Multi-sensor deployment and data gathering
  • Cloud-based platforms for device monitoring and management
  • Optimising the market opportunities for operators and service providers
  • Social limits to remote surveillance and control
  • Intrusive or non-intrusive approaches – when is either appropriate?
  • Exploring the user experience – simplifying deployment and operation
