We hired hackers to hack us; A case study about cloud-based authentication and security in IBM Connections

One of our customers is a political party in Norway. This year is an election year, and before and during every election, hackers try to hack them, big time!

Item Consulting is the business partner who introduced them to IBM Connections, which is now used broadly within the organisation and to collaborate with the government.

So, we thought it´d be best to run a security test before the election. We hired hackers!

This case study will show how Item Consulting integrated the cloud-based third-party authentication mechanism, Auth0, into IBM Connections, and you will learn about the hack attempt and what the hackers were able to find out. Did they manage to hack IBM Connections?
