In this tutorial, we will walk through the complete development process for creating a custom STS plug-in for Tivoli Federated Identity Manager (TFIM) 6.2. Customers might develop their own STS plug-ins for a variety of reasons including advanced user mapping and attribute gathering capabilities, or to support validation or issuing of proprietary security token types. This tutorial will use as a working example a simple mapping module which adds a configurable name/value parameter pair as an attribute to the TFIM Trust Service's STSUniversalUser.
04 Mar 2008 05:00:00 +0000As part of compliance requirements, organizations are required to perform attestation of a user's entitlements for access to systems. This process usually requires a responsible party (for example, the user's manager) to assert that the user continues to require access to a particular system. IBM Tivoli Identity Manager (ITIM) provides account attestation as part of its core functionality, and hence can implement complex attestation requirements. However, setting the attestation for a large number of target systems can be a chore. In addition, when a responsible party is asked to perform attestation for many users of a system as part of a continuous attestation cycle, the task becomes laborious. This tutorial gives the reader some methods for scaling attestation from a manageability perspective, using features available within ITIM 5.0.
