Identity management is a framework used to ensure appropriate access controls are in place to grant authenticated users access to enterprise assets. In this course, you will learn about the key fundamentals of identity management, including privilege administration, access control, and system scalability. Explore identification, authentication, authorization, accountability (IAAA) services and discover how personally identifiable information (PII) can be used to identify a subject. Explore the three main types of authentication factors: something you know, something you have, and something you are, and discover how to choose appropriate and accurate biometric criteria. You'll also learn about directory services and how they can be used to organize network resources. Explore password cracking techniques and tools, and discover when to use same sign-on and single sign-on authentication schemes. Lastly, explore how federation can be used to link together different authentication systems. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
