Secure AMQP Proxy with Forum Sentry

With more business adopting AMQP protocols to traverse information boundaries and cloud integration schemes, security requirements can be a hindrance to the ability to realize the full potential of AMQP integration capabilities. This is driven both by industry data privacy and data security requirements, and internal risk mitigation and information assurance requirements.

In this presentation, we will show how the Forum Sentry security gateway provides vendor neutral, code-free policy-based solutions with legacy and modern systems having varying message formats and varying protocols to all be able to securely interoperate within an AMQP communication scheme with minimal impact.

The AMQP security features provided include:

  • Protocol Security:  AMQP communications can be established via industry-certified FIPS 140-2 and NDPP compliant PKI security including TLS 1.2 support
  • Message Security:  AMQP communications can be encrypted and signed at the message level, or selective granular components of the message, to ensure integrity and privacy of the message exchanges.
  • Protocol Mixing:  AMQP communications can be translated into other protocol formats such as HTTP, JMS, or SFTP. This enables robust integration capabilities that can integrate components that are not yet AMQP compatible.
