5:45-7:15: Beyond Entitlements for the Cloud Native

A Policy Engine is a tool that allows for checking user privileges as well as evaluate a responsibility matrix based on dynamic data for a given user. A Policy Engine is not only an Entitlement Management System but also provides for functional evaluation of conditions that result in deterministic responsibilities for a given user or actor.

This session shows how to utilize Open Policy Agent with Spring Boot and HOCON to produce a responsibility management solution that scales to volume and performance needs.

Some hiccups that were faced while deriving the most optimal solution are also highlighted. A short explanation of some tooling built for validating the policy files in the IDE will also be discussed.
