Security: Writing Custom Authentication Schemes for Application Express

Raj Mattamal has put up an interesting topic for a presentation at Oracle Open World 2008, it’s about Writing Custom Authentication Schemes for Application Express. The presentation is not just the basic stuff you will find in the manual or the tutorial, it goes way further. For example it covers SSO over multiple workspaces.

In case if you are not interested in the topic, it’s still always fun to watch Raj doing a presentation/see him talking (fast). This guy has way to much energy or is drinking to much Red Bull 😉

So people, vote for him that he is able to present that topic at Oracle Open World 2008!

And don’t forget about the other great Oracle APEX sessions!
