Advanced Security Configuration Options for SAS® 9.4 Web Applications and Mobile Devices
SAS® 9.4 has overhauled web authentication schemes, and the integration with enterprise security infrastructure is quite different from that of SAS® 9.3. This paper examines advanced security features such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) configuration, single sign-on (SSO) support through Integrated Windows authentication (IWA), and third-party security packages like CA SiteMinder and IBM Tivoli Access Manager and WebSEAL. FIPS 140-2 compliance efforts that enforce the use of a stronger encryption algorithm for web communication and the SAS® system itself are also described. The authentication support for mobile devices such as the iPad is different. The secure Wi-Fi connection from a mobile device to the IT internal resources, as well as how it can be safely integrated into the enterprise security configuration by using the same user repository as the SAS web applications, is explained. The configuration example is shown with SAS® Visual Analytics 6.2.

Association Mining of Brain Data: An EEG Study
Many different neuroscience researchers have explored how various parts of the brain are connected, but no one has performed association mining using brain data. In this study, we used SAS® Enterprise Miner 7.1 for association mining of brain data collected by a 14-channel EEG device. An application of the association mining technique is presented in this novel context of brain activities and by linking our results to theories of cognitive neuroscience. The brain waves were collected while a user processed information about Facebook, the most well-known social networking site. The data was cleaned using Independent Component Analysis via an open source MATLAB package. Next, by applying the LORETA algorithm, activations at every fraction of the second were recorded. The data was codified into transactions to perform association mining. Results showing how various parts of brain get excited while processing the information are reported. This study provides preliminary insights into how brain wave data can be analyzed by widely available data mining techniques to enhance researcher s understanding of brain activation patterns.

Designing for the Mobile Workforce
The evolution of the mobile landscape has created a shift in the workforce that now favors mobile devices over traditional desktops. Considering that today's workforce is not always in the office or at their desks, new opportunities have been created to deliver report content through innovative mobile experiences. SAS® Mobile BI for both iOS and Android tablets compliments the SAS® Visual Analytics offering by providing anytime, anywhere access to reports containing information that consumers need. This paper presents best practices and tips on how to optimize reports for mobile users, taking into consideration the constraints of limited screen real estate and connectivity, as well as answers a few frequently asked questions. Discover how SAS Mobile BI captures the power of mobile reporting to prepare for the vast growth that is predicted in the future.

Secure Your Analytical Insights on the Plane, in the Café, and on the Train with SAS® Mobile BI
Security-conscious organizations have rigorous IT regulations, especially when company data is available on the move. This paper explores the options available to secure a deployment of SAS® Mobile BI with SAS® Visual Analytics. The setup ensures encrypted communication from remote mobile clients all the way to backend servers. Additionally, the integration of SAS Mobile BI with third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) software and Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology enable you to place several layers of security and access control to your data. The paper also covers the out-of-the box security features of the SAS Mobile BI and SAS Visual Analytics administration applications to help you close the loop on all possible areas of exploitation.
