Recent IAM reading…

I didn’t blog or even tweet much over the holidays, but I did manage to catch up on a few good posts and articles while lazing around…

  • The Quest to Replace Passwords — Extensive report on challenges with replacing password (HT@aniltj).  The table on page 11 is worth a good study for anyone interested how various password-less authentication options stack up.
  • Identity Management on a Shoestring — An excellent report on how to implement IAM in an enterprise without spending years/millions.  Uncanny resemblance to work I’ve been involved with in the past several years, i.e. customized implementations that are not constricted by the cost and complexity of COTS solutions.
  • Economic Tussles in Federated Identity Management — Another excellent paper, this time on the economic issues related to Fed ID.  Points out how successful implementations occur when IdPs, SPs and users all receive benefits.
  • OASIS Identity in the Cloud Use Cases — A list of 29 use cases that are a solid reference for future IAM projects that involve cloud services.  (HT to @RBsTweets.)
  • Gov’t of Canada SecureKey page — A summary of SecureKey and the Canadian federal organization and legislation that supports its implementation.  Would be nice to see a link to the PIA…

These should get your new year off to a good start – happy 2013 everyone!
