UAA Feature Updates and 2017 Roadmap [I] - Sree Tummidi, Pivotal
In the past year, multiple features have been introduced in UAA which have accelerated its adoption in the CF ecosystem.
OpenID Connect Enhancements:
Multiple enhancements around OpenID Connect have been introduced for UAA as an Identity Provider and Relying Party including support for discovery profile, custom user claims in id_token and /userinfo , account chooser, authentication method reference and much more.
Keys and Secrets Rotation:
At last year’s CF Summit Justin Smith introduced his vision for Cloud Native Security with three R’s(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUXpz0Dni50). Now UAA supports canary style rotation of signing keys and OAuth clients secrets and will soon add support for rotation of SAML Keys.
UAA since its inception has supported JSON Web Tokens which has the advantage of offline validation. However with the the addition of stateful opaque tokens UAA now supports on-demand token revocation.
In addition to this Sree Tummidi will also provide a sneak peek of the UAA roadmap for FY 2017 with features like Multi-Factor Authentication, additional token exchange flows and fine grained authorization support.
