Identity Management on a Shoestring

Identity Management on a Shoestring

“Identity Management on a Shoestring: Architectural Lessons from a Real-World Implementation”, written by Ganesh Prasad and Umesh Rajbhandari, is about a radically different approach to Identity and Access Management (IAM) called LIMA (Lightweight/Low-cost/Loosely-coupled Identity Management Architecture).


This ebook is aimed at Security and IT practitioners (especially architects) in end-user organisations who are responsible for implementing an enterprise-wide Identity and Access Management (IAM) system. It is neither a conceptual treatment of Identity (for which we would refer the reader to Kim Cameron’s excellent work on the Laws of Identity) nor a detailed technical manual on a particular product. It describes a pragmatic and costeffective architectural approach to implementing IAM within an organisation, based on the experience of the authors.
