Strong Authentication Now!

Refreshments provided by

If you are in any way involved with Federal IT Security, then you are impacted by the current 30-day CyberSprint. The ISSA National Capital Chapter has scheduled a special out-of-band meeting to help you solve one of the toughest problems for most Agencies – Single Sign-On.

Are you having trouble getting to Single Sign-On (SSO)? Join a panel of Subject Matter Experts from across the Federal Government as they discuss resources and strategies to help you implement Single Sign-On in your Agency.

This special meeting will cover:

  • Brief SSO Overview
  • Privileged User SSO strategies
  • Putty CAC client
  • Username Hints
  • Application SSO onboarding strategies
  • SAML
  • Agents
  • PIV Direct
  • Kerberos Authentication
  • Open discussion – an opportunity to get advice about your personal SSO nightmare

We have moved our regular meeting time a week ahead to July 14th, to help you meet your deadlines to be SSO compliant. Please excuse the last-minute notice, but we want to get this information out to our membership as quickly as possible to help you comply with the very tight deadlines imposed by the Cyber Sprint.
