Identity and access management with OpenIAM

Authorization Center

Conclusions

OpenIAM is an extremely complex and comprehensive piece of software for the management of user identities and access rights. The tool supports all requirements that companies have for a modern IAM tool. Thanks to SOA (Special Operations Associates) security and the numerous APIs that the software provides, it is easy to adapt or extend it to your own needs.

The integrated Groovy scripting language lets you create scripts that synchronize users from a source system to any target system with flexible mapping of user attributes. Together with single sign-on support, OpenIAM also acts as an identity provider and combines this with sophisticated access management. The feature scope naturally requires a certain amount of training; however, the effort will certainly pay off in later operation. After all, OpenIAM helps you automate almost all operations for identity and access management.
