In the early days of online access control, there was no differentiation made between authentication (proving who you are) and authorization (what you were permitted to do). Once authenticated in a particular environment, a user was, for the most part, authorized to use everything. Over the years, the need for differentiating authorization grew alongside the difficulty of providing a finer-grain approach to granting access. This session will present a model of privilege management and its integration with the rest of the IdM infrastructure.
