The management of user identities and access to organizational resources is one of the top security challenges facing enterprises and governments today. It is a critical requirement for Web-based e-business and e-government initiatives. Identity and access management involves controlling the process that enables people or systems to have secure, consistent access to business resources, including networks, business applications and organizational information through the use of digital identities, such as passwords, smart cards, digital certificates and biometric identifiers.
