Description

IT networks face increasing threats from both inside and outside your organization. Traditional perimeter defenses can miss insider threats, such as password leaks and fraud due to staff complacency, as well as external online threats such as zero-day attacks. To limit the presence of these threats, many IT departments are using identity and access management (IAM) solutions. In this course, The Issues of Identity and Access Management (IAM), you'll learn to look at IAM from the perspective of the issues that it can create for your organization. First, you'll dive into Oauth/OpenID and where the weaknesses are. Next, you'll explore SSO and federations. Finally, you'll learn how to setup a hacking environment using the AutoLab. When you're finished with this course, you'll be able to look at your IAM solution and see if you're protecting yourself, as well as your users.
