Identity Management 101

In The Secure World of Unsecure Unicorns

About the Book

100% security is a unicorn

Secure unicorns

in a secure world

where their privacy is secured

Yes, you already got the point. That being said, welcome! I’ve been studying secure unicorns and their habits for a pretty long time. During that time, and as a conclusion of my extensive effort, I figured out that a big part of them are known as procrastinating unicorns whose famous motto is:

I’ll think about security later

After even more studies and research around these interesting creatures, I decided to write this book to share with you the (not so much) secret weapon of secure unicorns: Identity and Access Management.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) this time: it is one of the central assets of every business. Indeed, Identity and Access Management presents both opportunities and risks for every organization. A well-rounded Identity and Access Management system allows everyone to access products, services, and resources. Anyhow, successfully managing identities implies that any organization has to overcome significant limits and obstacles of security including privacy, usability, and social concerns.
