How do we validate the identity of users in such a way as to protect the organization and at the same time ease the access process so that we do not make unnecessary users?
Any process that takes time and effort is unacceptable and difficult to integrate.
ID management is an organizational process for identifying, authenticating, and empowering individuals or groups of people to access applications, systems, or networks by associating established identities. Managed identities can also refer to software processes that need access to organizational systems.
The burden of administering multiple profiles increases as the number of users increases. Here, the proper implementation of this solution will greatly reduce the overall administrative work required to manage information for users in a centralized repository.
Issues that identity management (ID management) solves:
- Too many teams are involved in the administration of consumers, leading to a lot of administrative costs
- Presence of accounts created by staff with unauthorized access rights to the system
- Lack of standardized identifiers leading to the creation of multiple access identifiers by the same user
- Different policies for identification between multiple groups
- Badly defined and documented systems with missing audit trails
- Unnecessary or incorrect information that does not correctly identify directories and identities
Are you looking for information about the authenticity of information? You want to be sure that it is not changed?
Digital identity provides information about the author, identifying from where and whom the information comes from. For each user or organization, the certification body issues a public key that is accessible to everyone. The corresponding private key is owned exclusively by one person.
For digitally signing data, a party that sends or publishes digital information encrypts it with its private key and adds it to the document. Businesses and individuals make great efforts to protect their digital signatures, such as keeping them in separate networks and machines. Only one incident, however, can make digital signatures absolutely useless. This can be malware that scans infected computers and steals digital certificates, or it can be a human error, such as a carefree employee who is in a phishing trap.
Two-factor authentication (2FA)
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a well-known method of protecting users against theft of digital identity. 2FA binds access to online accounts and information to have two or more characters that prove an ownership or a permission.
- More protection when accessing a service
- More security of service
