Identity Management Basics
- Defining Identity Management:
Defines the components of identity management, starting with the underlying business challenges of managing user identities and entitlements across multiple systems and applications. Identity management functions are defined in the context of these challenges.
- Identity Management Terminology:
This document introduces key identity management terminology and offers clear, unambiguous definitions. The intent is to help the reader focus on solving real problems, rather than waste energy on the language of identity management.
- Beyond Roles: A Practical Approach to Enterprise User Provisioning:
Introduces a strategy for large-scale enterprise identity and entitlement management that takes advantage of roles but is not constrained to only using roles. The strategy complements the traditional role-based approach with user-issued security requests and periodic audits.
