Identity Management with midPoint

MidPoint is an comprehensive open source Identity Management system. It can handle even a very complex enterprise IDM scenarios and it can replace commercial IDM systems. This talk will introduce the basic architecture of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution with midPoint as the IDM component.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions are almost always composed of several components that needs to be integrated. The Identity Management (IDM) component is the crucial integrating part. However the open source IDM solutions were very simplistic in the past and only commercial IDM solutions were available to handle complex IDM deployments. But now there is a viable open source solution. MidPoint is an open source IDM system that can completely replace commercial products. It has all that an IDM system should have: synchronization, RBAC, attribute mappings, workflow, reporting, governance, etc. It is the most comprehensive open source IDM solution available.

This talk with start by introducing basic components of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution. It will describe the crucial role of an IDM system in the solution. We will argue that no enterprise security project can ever be complete without and IDM and we will show why. We will also describe how midPoint can be a perfect solution.
