In simple terms, identity and access management (IAM) is a framework of business processes, policies and technologies that facilitates the management of electronic or digital identities. By the help of an IAM framework in place, information technology (IT) managers can control user access to critical information within their organizations. Moreover, identity and access management (IAM) is the efficient integration and management of identities, giving users access to the right resources at the right time. However, it is no longer a mere security project for enterprises because the integration and secure governance of APIs are more important than ever before. In today's time, security has become a big challenge for identity architects and administrators due to increasing user identity spaces, company-wide policies, complex structure hierarchies and roles, regulatory pressures and customer facing applications.
Nevertheless, IAM has its challenges too. With time, user access management, application, containers, microservices and integration spaces have grown in complexity and become more decentralized. Consequence of which is that complexities arise for identity silos, securing an increasing number of APIs and endpoints, account management, user password maintenance, regulatory compliance like GDPR & CCP, licensing and software costs when implementing IAM solutions. An open source IAM provider, in this scenario, like an Identity Server helps to meet various challenges. Additionally, an Identity Server aims to address both API and user domains while providing an enhanced user experience as part of an Integration Agile Platform. Basically, it’s a highly extensible IAM product, designed to secure APIs and microservices and enable Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM). A lot of other key features include identity federation, SSO, strong and adaptive authentication and privacy compliance.
Undoubtedly, identity management is at the center of digital transformation and the next generation of enterprise IT. However, the corresponding changes in identification systems and services are expected to be as disruptive as the new business models, apps, and ecosystems they serve over the next five years. Consequently, a dependable and consistent means of obtaining, organizing and exchanging data is the core of Identity as a Utility (IaaU). Also, data sharing and coordination of data changes across various silos has long been a traditional cornerstone of many solutions and its roots may be observed in current IAM challenges such user account provisioning.
