NetIQ Access Governance Suite – Working with Roles and EntitlementsOne of the key benefits of NetIQ Access Governance Suite is to devolve access reviews to the business. In order to do this, the business needs to understand the meaning of each entitlement in the context of the business. For example an entitlement showing membership of an Active Directory group is usually meaningless, whereas a business role, such as “Legal Secretary” with the same entitlement assigned can be easily understood. Once defined, roles can be used in access reviews, in place of one or more entitlements, to ensure the business correctly understands the level of access. In this session, delegates will learn how to work with the various types of roles to translate IT terminology into language that can be easily understood by the business, with the aim of increasing acceptance of the access review process by the business and laying the foundation for devolving access life cycle to the business.

Evolving Your Identity Manager Solution Beyond Synchronization to Include Roles Based Provisioning Using Identity Manager 4When first introduced to the Roles-Based Provisioning Module, the new concepts of roles and resources as well as how they relate to entitlements can be confusing. This case study will explain the purposes of each, describe how to use them to your benefit, and describe the challenges and solutions enabling clients who use Identity Manager in a synchronization only or custom entitlement paradigm to move to the standardized role-resource-entitlement model. Last year, CIS was engaged with a mature and advanced Identity Manager customer who had developed their own equivalent solution to entitlements using a combination of schema extensions, group memberships, roles and policies. The proprietary solution was functional; however it could not easily take advantage of new Identity Manager components such as the Role Mapping Administrator, nor would it directly leverage out-of-the-box integrations like those provided by the NetIQ® Access Governance Suite. CIS embarked on a program with this customer to evolve the Identity Manager solution, maintaining continuity with the existing hand-built entitlements while re-implementing the integrations using the current Roles-Based Provisioning Module entitlements. This solution enabled a smooth migration to a new solution, leveraged off-the-shelf integrations and positioned the customer for more rapid and smooth future integrations.

Identity Manager 101: Deploying the Active Directory driver and the eDirectory DriverIn this session, we will cover the development and deployment of the Active Directory driver in Identity Manager 4. The topics discussed will include deployment strategies, design decisions, and pitfalls. We will also perform a walk-through of the installation and a demonstration of the driver. Additionally, we will cover the development and deployment of both the bi-directional and traditional eDirectoryTM driver in Identity Manager 4.02.
