Metadirectories & Resource Provisioning BoF

Time 05/02/05 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

The functions of reflecting and joining information from source systems, adding credentials, and provisioning application security infrastructure using the resultant information are central to the operation of an Identity and Access Management System (IdMS) that automates life-cycle management of digital resources provided to people as they join or leave an organization or undergo changes in affiliation or status. A sampling of real-world scenarios which serve to highlight key requirements, challenges, and operational concerns related to metadirectory and provisioning systems will be presented. Open source tools being developed to provide these core IdMS functions will be featured.
