Mapping a person, place, or thing to a software resource in a verifiable manner is the basis of identity. Confirming that identity is a complex process, particularly when the identity mapping has to be verified genuine and authentic. Everything on the internet that houses private information is tied to identity and identity management.
In this report, author Lee Atchison shows C-suite execs, engineering execs, architects, and others involved in building software applications the modern identity management techniques available to safeguard that simple access point. You'll learn how and why these techniques constantly need to keep up with modern application development, and you'll understand the growing sophistication of the people who safely interact or maliciously tamper with them.
