The identity management chain has many links. You have to Identify, Provision, Authenticate, Federate, Manage and De-Provision your constituents and other "things". For years the reliance on passwords has made authentication the weakest link. As a result, organizations are adopting stronger methods of authentication, such as multi-factor, and considering alternatives to passwords altogether. These investments are costly and need to be protected. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is updating Special Publication 800-63 to establish that identity, authentication, and federation each have separate assurance levels. Previously, all three concepts were blended into a single assurance framework. Learn how to tie your risk management program and digital identity assurance architecture standards together.
- Understand how a properly run risk management program influences the organizations standards for identification, authentication and federation.
