Overview/Description

Learners can explore identity management, also known as IAM (identity and access management), in this 14-video course helping prepare for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam. You will learn how to configure identities to have strong authentication for users and devices, such as smart phones. Next, examine single-factor authentication, in which one category is used to authenticate, such as a username and a password. You will examine multifactor authentication where there is a username and a password, and having an additional private key. Learners continue by examining how to use an identity federation, and SSO (single sign-on) a centralized trusted set of logon credentials. This course demonstrates the multiple phases of the IAM lifecycle, including account request, how accounts are provisioned, how the user access is enforced and reported, and how it is de-provisioned. You will learn the concepts and terminology, including IDP (identity provider) and RP (resource provider), and how to use MS Active Directory for authentication. Finally, learners will examine Amazon Web Services CLI (command-line interface) authentication.
