IBM Pulse 2012 presentation by Alex Ivkin (Prolifics) and Grey Thrasher (IBM)
Synthesizing the business view of IT resources with the technical implementation of Role Based Access Control remains one of the toughest challenges in Identity Management today. We will walk through a real-world use case to understand how organizations can utilize the new IBM Role and Policy Modeler (RaPM) tool to discover essential business relationships and map them to IT access permissions, creating the schema for a comprehensive RBAC system. We will explain how the design criteria provided by RaPM has enabled the foundation of a comprehensive Identity and Role Lifecycle Management structure. The follow-on implementation of an RBAC system in the Identity Provisioning platform, IBM Tivoli Identity Manager, will be explored, as well as how this organization is automating access privileges, simplifying internal security controls and reducing the complexity of audit and compliance enforcement.
