IDentia provides a flexible and robust online IdAM solution designed for extended enterprise in cyberspace. It implements an identity bridge that integrates the flexibilty of OpenID with the robustness of SAML, enabling PKI-based authentication and Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC).
CENTRALIZED USER AUTHENTICATION CAPABILITIES FOR
HOW IDENTIA WORKS
WHY IDENTITY FEDERATION
IDentia offers a solution that moves the responsibility of user authentication away from individual web servers to centralized or federated identity providers, reducing the complexity of credential management and authentication for each participating web site.
When a user is accessing a web site or relying party (RP), the user is redirected to the appropriate Identity Provider (IdP), which is responsible for authenticating the user, and optionally providing various attributes about that user back to the RP. Once a user is authenticated, he or she can move between multiple RPs without re-authentication, enjoying the benefits of Single Sign-On (SSO). IDentia offers IdPs under multiple protocols such as SAML, OpenID and OpenID Connect; and IDentia RPs are also enabled with these standards.
With IDentia, the level of user privacy also increases because all user identity and attribute information are maintained in or are accessible only by the IdP. The user identity information is not revealed to any party other than the RP and IdP during the this process.
IDentia offers localized user authorization via policy driven ABAC. The traditional Role Based Access Control (RBAC) is not a flexible approach for large enterprises because in an environment with hundreds of users, they will not all fall into the same set roles. IDentia solves this problem by using ABAC to offer a more fine-grained access control.
ABAC evaluates user attributes to grant access rights. Attributes can be as precise as IP address, or as broad as organization. ABAC grants access rights based on eXtensible Markup Language (XML) policies. Such policies map user attributes to resources such as directories, URLs, or files.
