Distributed Management Systems and WSO2 Partner to Integrate CASQUE SNR and Open Source WSO2 Identity Server for IAM with Advanced Authentication

Joint webinar will explore how integration with CASQUE SNR adds the highest levels of multi-factor authentication to WSO2 Identity Server’s identity and access management

Mountain View, CA, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WSO2 and Distributed Management Systems Limited (DMS) today announced that they have partnered to extend the multi-factor authentication (MFA) capabilities in WSO2 Identity Server via integration with CASQUE SNR. The CASQUE Connector co-developed by the companies is available now as a free download from the WSO2 Connector Store.

WSO2 Identity Server is the highly extensible, open source identity and access management (IAM) solution optimized for identity federation and single sign-on (SSO). CASQUE SNR from DMS offers identity assurance for people and things by producing keys that are changed dynamically to provide immunity against insider attacks, token clones, and manufacturer compromise. Together, they give organizations superior flexibility, control and protection over the identities they manage.

Additionally, DMS and WSO2 will co-host a webinar, “Securing Applications Using WSO2 Identity Server and CASQUE,” which will examine how the integrated products address common vulnerabilities found in many MFA solutions. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. GMT, and it also will be available on-demand.

CASQUE Connector for WSO2 Identity Server

WSO2 Identity Server provides a comprehensive, open source IAM solution for managing customer, partner and employee identities. The software is optimized for identity federation and SSO with comprehensive support for strong, adaptive authentication and API security. Using WSO2 Identity Server, identity administrators can federate identities, secure access to web and mobile applications and endpoints, and bridge identity protocols across on-premises and cloud environments.

Meanwhile, CASQUE SNR enables organizations to overcome the typical vulnerabilities of MFA, which rely on a fixed secret. This secret might be an embedded key in SecurID, a private key in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), or an attestation key in Fast ID Online 2 (FIDO2). If it is discovered by hackers, calculated through factorization, or disclosed by an insider, the security fails.

Because CASQUE SNR does not rely on a fixed secret, there is nothing to target or disclose. Instead, it relies on the Challange-Response family of protocols to calculate the response in a secure chip embedded in a handheld token. With CASQUE, users can own and control their independent identity access provision without reliance or exposure from manufacturers or managed service delivery partners. Each token has a secure chip that is Evaluation Assurance Level 6 and Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 Level 3. CASQUE can be deployed both on-premises or on the cloud, and it is specifically designed to control access via mobile devices.

Now with the CASQUE Connector, WSO2 Identity Server customers can leverage CASQUE SNR technology to perform more secure MFA using dynamic secrets. First, WSO2 Identity Server handles the primary username/password authentication, and then it refers the prescribed IDs to CASQUE for secondary browser authentication. The CASQUE challenge, which can be presented as a QR code or smartcard token, is created by the CASQUE Authentication Server Software (Windows or Linux; Physical or Virtual) supplied by DMS.

“It has been both educational and enjoyable working with the WSO2 team to develop an integration architecture that exploits the full flexibility of both our technologies so that high assurance authentication can be deployed where and when required,” said DMS Managing Director Basil Philipsz.

“We are pleased to introduce the integration between CASQUE SNR and WSO2 Identity Server,” said WSO2 Vice President of Security Architecture Prabath Siriwardena. “Through this integration, the capabilities of WSO2 Identity Server are extended to provide users with an even more secure form of MFA.”

Webinar: Securing Applications Using WSO2 Identity Server and CASQUE

Together, Basil Philipsz and Dinali Dabarera, a senior software engineer on the WSO2 IAM team, will examine the vulnerabilities of MFA methods that rely on a fixed secret. Then they will discuss how stronger authentication methods, such as the approach offered by CASQUE, are needed to secure highly confidential information. Next, Basil and Dinali will explore how CASQUE works on a dynamic secret rather than a fixed one that can be targeted or disclosed. Finally, they will explore how the integration between CASQUE and WSO2 extends the functionality of WSO2 Identity Server to provide more secure MFA.

Opening of new Dutch wind farm puts Philips on course to becoming carbon neutral by 2020

May 16, 2019
  • On-schedule opening of Windpark Krammer by Dutch monarch makes Philips’ Netherlands-based operations 100% powered by renewable energy
  • Combined with the 100% target already achieved in the US, Philips is now firmly on course to achieve global carbon neutrality next year, delivering on its commitment to the UN Sustainability Goals on climate change

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Following the opening of the Windpark Krammer in the southwest of the Netherlands in the presence of His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, achieved another major milestone on the road to becoming carbon neutral by 2020. Under the terms of a power purchase agreement (PPA) between the windfarm’s operators and the Dutch Wind Consortium – a joint initiative by Philips, DSM, Google and Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) – the consortium partners will jointly purchase 95% of the wind park’s total 102 MW output (generated by 34 wind turbines) for the next 15 years. It means that 100% of Philips’ operations in the Netherlands will now be powered by renewable energy, matching the 100% renewable energy target already achieved in the company’s US operations. Globally it means that around half of Philips’ facilities worldwide will now be powered by green energy.

“Philips has a comprehensive sustainability strategy that is embedded into its business model both on the procurement side, such as the purchase of green energy, and on the customer side in the form of circular economy and sustainable healthcare solutions,” said Frans van Houten, CEO Royal Philips. “We see achieving carbon neutrality as soon as possible not only as a moral obligation but also as a business opportunity, because customers are increasingly looking at sustainability as a criteria to choose a vendor. It is also visible evidence of our commitment to meeting UN Sustainability Goal objectives, notably those on climate change, as part of our ‘Healthy people, Sustainable planet’ program.”

“Krammer has emerged from a unique citizens’ initiative and Nouryon is proud to be one of their first customers,” said Marcel Galjee, Energy Director at Nouryon. “By working together in this green energy purchasing consortium with Philips, Google and DSM we aim to limit the risk in fluctuating energy supplies, while at the same time reducing emissions and growing our business.”

‘The opening of the Windpark Krammer is a milestone for the community, the Zeeuwind and Deltawind cooperations who initiated this project and for our consortium,” said Marc Oman, Google EU Energy lead. “It is because of long term purchase agreements with local windparks like Krammer that we can operate our business in the Netherlands in an environmentally sustainable way.”

Consumer to business, not business to consumer
The Dutch Wind Consortium is a unique initiative that attracted worldwide attention last year by jointly purchasing the energy output of Windpark Bouwdokken, another wind farm in the area that came on-stream in April 2018. The PPAs, negotiated with the wind farm operators in 2016 and 2017, represent win-win situations for all parties. The operators, in both cases part-owned by cooperatives comprising several thousand local Dutch citizens, are guaranteed a market for their energy, making it easier for them to finance green energy projects, while the consortium benefits from improved cost stability in volatile energy markets over a 15-year period. The consortium initiative will also help the Dutch government to achieve its 14% renewable energy target for 2020, as well as encouraging future commercial and citizen-driven green energy projects. The two windfarms have a combined capacity of more than 140 MW, enough to supply around 140,000 Dutch households with electricity.

Philips’ Healthy people, Sustainable planet program
Aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the Philips ‘Healthy people, Sustainable planet’ program has three focal areas: access to care for the underserved (SDG3), sustainable use of materials (circular economy and eco-design) (SDG12) and sustainable use of energy (energy and emission reduction, and renewable energy) (SDG13).

In addition to achieving the milestone of powering 100% of its Netherlands operations with renewable energy, other highlights of Philips’ SDG13 commitment include: an increase in its global renewable electricity share from 79% in 2017 to 90% in 2018; powering of all its US operations with renewable energy from the Los Mirasoles wind farm in Texas; and approval of its 2020 – 2040 CO2 emission targets by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a collaboration between the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and the World Wide Fund for Nature aimed at driving ambitious corporate climate action.
