VAIL, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cloud Identity Summit (Booth 1-C) — Layer 7 Technologies, the leader in API management technology for mobile, cloud and open Web, today announced that it will be the first API security and management vendor to demonstrate a tech-preview of the implementer’s draft for the OpenID Connect protocol. By building on the Layer 7 OAuth Toolkit, now with OpenID Connect support, enterprise customers will be able to employ highly scalable authentication, authorization and session management systems in mobile or cloud API scenarios.
“Identity is at the heart of application and API security. However, traditional Web-oriented access and session management technologies are not optimized for the resource location complexity of cloud or the performance requirements of mobile,” said Stephen Mak, OAuth toolkit product manager at Layer 7 Technologies. “The Layer 7 OAuth Toolkit, now with OpenID Connect, helps enterprises extend their existing identity infrastructure to mobile and cloud.”
Attendees of the Cloud Identity Summit can also watch Layer 7 Technologies’ Chief Architect Francois Lascelles speak on a panel titled, “The Critical Role of Identity in API Security” on Thursday, July 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 11:55 a.m. MT.
