Cloud Identity Services - Models and Challenges

As the software-as-a-service (SaaS) market explodes, more and more organizations struggle to gain control over their user’s identities in the cloud. Some are also exploring outsourcing their identity and access management (IAM) functions to the cloud.

There are three architectural models for implementing cloud identity services:

  • In the cloud – identity and access management as an on-demand service
  • To the cloud – IAM from an on-premise platform
  • Hybrid – a model that includes elements of both on-demand and on-premise solutions.

In this session, we will discuss the key architectural, platform, integration, security, scalability and reliability issues which organizations seeking to adopt cloud-based identity need to consider, including the increasingly significant role that Cloud Identity Broker/Cloud Security Broker technology is playing. The discussion will also assess current and evolving technology and industry standards available for managing SaaS account provisioning/de-provisioning, single sign-on, strong authentication, and other identity operations.


When you finish this session, you will have a framework for analyzing the state of today’s technology options and selecting the most appropriate architectural platform to meet your businesses identity requirements in the cloud.
