Identity Management

With the proliferation of applications and application users, the computing industry has recognized the need for a way to manage the user-application relationship. Creating user accounts, resetting passwords, and assigning application privileges consumes an enormous amount of administrative cycles. With so many applications and users, the job of managing all the accounts can be onerous.

To relieve this challenge, identity management solutions are being developed and deployed. Identity management (IM) provides complete services for the administration of users within an organization. IM offers the ability to create users, manage their authentication credentials (passwords and digital certificates), assign privileges and authorizations, and suspend or delete user accounts. IM is the complete ability to do everything that is needed with regard to managing user accounts.
