We’d like to call Eve Maler our first guest “vlogger.” We asked Eve to set up her video camera to answer a series of questions over the next several weeks about identity issues and cloud computing. In her first installment, Eve answers the question about what identity issues the enterprise should be aware of with a public cloud computing service.
Eve is a principal engineer at Sun Microsystems. Network World calls her a renaissance woman, which is hard to dispute. She is one of the inventors of the extensible markup language (XML). She is a sought after speaker.
For our purposes, Eve joins our community as a recognized leader in defining what identity means in cloud computing. She is a contributor to the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), which she cites in the video as a standard that is recognized by Google Apps and Salesforce.
Eve is also a rocker. Check out her band, Mud Junket.
