OASIS and SPML Cloud Computing

Identity provisioning and control are key aspects of security. Where a vendor’s offerings for identity provisioning are insufficient, and Cloud Security Alliance says that capabilities currently offered by cloud providers are not currently adequate to meet enterprise requirements, Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) provides a way to leverage standard connectors provided by cloud providers without resorting to proprietary solutions such as creating custom connectors unique to cloud providers, as these exacerbate management complexity, restrict mobility and are maintenance-intensive.

Oasis (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) offers SPML an XML-based framework for exchanging user, resource and service provisioning information between cooperating organizations. It’s a good technique for avoiding the single greatest risk in using public clouds. Enhanced credentialing is facilitated by creating a dedicated VPN tunnel to the corporate network.
