Hybrid and remote work are more common than ever, and employees need secure access to enterprise resources from wherever they are. This is where identity and access management (IAM) comes to the rescue. The organization's IT department needs to control what users can and can't access so that sensitive data and functions are restricted to only the people and resources that need to work with them. In this course, we will explore IAM tools beginning with provisioning and deprovisioning user accounts, and password concepts including password best practices, length, complexity, reuse, expiration, age, password managers, and passwordless solutions. Next, we will look at federation and single sign-on (SSO), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Open Authorization (OAuth), Security Assertions Markup Language (SAML), interoperability, and attestation. We will then consider access control models including mandatory, discretionary, role-based, rule-based, attribute-based, time-of-day restrictions, and least privilege. Finally, we will explore multi-factor authentication (MFA), biometric authentication, and privileged access management tools (PAM). This course is part of a series that prepares you for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-701) exam.
