Rich Internet Applications with OpenAjax Hub 1.1 & SMash Secure Mashups

Sumeer Bhola and Jon Ferraiolo's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

In this session Jon and Sumeer will describe current work at OpenAjax Alliance on OpenAjax Hub 1.1 and secure mashups. Mashups have the potential for revolutionizing the way Web applications are developed, but there are security risks. In order to unleash the industry, OpenAjax Alliance is adding secure mashup features to its OpenAjax Hub 1.1 release. This new release will include a set of techniques called "SMash" that were originally developed by IBM Research and allows for secure mashups that run in today's browsers. The session will introduce mashups, OpenAjax Hub, and SMash, and will highlight related OpenAjax work around widget metadata standards.

Speaker Bios: Sumeer Bhola is a research staff member at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, where he investigates security for the Web. He has previously worked on distributed computing, computer supported collaborative work, autonomic computing, and realtime systems. He received a Ph.D. in computer science from Georgia Tech, and a BS from IIT Delhi.

Jon Ferraiolo is a member of IBM's Emerging Technologies group where he manages operations and leads various activities in the OpenAjax Alliance. Before joining IBM, Jon worked at Adobe for 13 years where he was an architect, engineering manager and product manager on multiple products and where he participated in various standards activities.
