Novell Nsure UDDI Server Adds Secure Identity Management to the UDDI Standard
Novell Nsure UDDI Server Adds Secure Identity Management to the UDDI Standard

(December 18, 2002) - Novell has extended its secure identity management expertise to a key Web services standard to help businesses more easily and confidently deploy Web services. Based on Novell's eDirectory, Novell Nsure UDDI Server bolsters security and simplifies management of Web services registries.

Since its inception in 2000, adoption of the UDDI standard has been limited, partly because initial Web services deployments have been relatively small, but also because the standard lacks adequate provisions to ensure the security and management of registered services. With the delivery of a UDDI server based on eDirectory, Novell is attacking those limitations head on.

Novell Nsure UDDI Server allows businesses to register Web services and make them available to internal or external users, while leveraging the security and management inherent in eDirectory. Users, whether publishing or consuming services, can be required to first authenticate to the directory and verify their identity. Equally important, those users, their access rights, and the registered Web services can be easily managed with eDirectory tools like Novell iManager, which are familiar to most network administrators.

Novell Nsure UDDI Server is now available for free download. For more information, go to http://developer.novell.com/uddi.

Novell's core competency is LDAP, so it doesn't surprise me that they built a UDDI registry on LDAP. But the claims in this article are bogus.

Any decent private registry implementation (e.g., IBM, Microsoft, Systinet, etc.) has integrated security features which allow you to require a login before you can access the registry. Thay also give you powerful access control on the registry content.

For example, Systinet WASP UDDI allows you to put access control on every individual element (businessEntity, businessService, bindingTemplate, and tModels). If you don't have the authority to access a specific tModel, you can't retrieve it.

Having been involved in the UDDI spec development and in UDDI product development, I can tell you that it really doesn't make sense to try to use LDAP as the UDDI data store. UDDI is not a directory. It is a registry -- a huge, multi-dimensional index, filled with tons of relationship information, with lots of referential integrity issues. UDDI has a complex relational data model. LDAP doesn't provide a built-in mechanism to represent relationships. It doesn't support referential integrity. It doesn't support multi-step transactions. The UDDI data model doesn't easily map to LDAP.

Only someone who's obsessed with LDAP would try to build UDDI on LDAP rather than a relational database.
