The book is a powerful, novel approach to the analysis and synthesis of IAM systems. It is motivated by the realization that the current practice of Information Systems in general, and Identity and Access Management in particular, is increasingly divorced from its Systems Engineering underpinnings. Even for the most innovative and resourceful practitioners, the architecture, design, implementation and support of enterprise Information Technology systems has taken a complex inferential approach, driven by algorithmic and rule based protocols and standards. This work creates a solid foundation for IAM by using established concepts from Systems Engineering, using systems representations for major IAM processes like authentication and authorization. Such systems formulations may then be used to analyze IAM systems in complicated organizations using established Systems Engineering methods. For example, the book shows that problems in IAM such as risk propagation and authentication processes that were heretofore analyzed in terms of prescriptive, algorithmic or empirical schemes, are indeed amenable to general theoretical treatment. The book is specifically designed to be accessible to the general IT practitioner. It is with this goal in mind that it teases out the concepts in a way that anyone with some college education will be able to understand.

The second edition of a bestseller, System Management: Planning, Enterprise Identity, and Deployment demonstrates how to make systems development work for any organization. Updated with new chapters, examples, and figures, it discusses the optimum marriage between specific program planning and a company's generic identity. The author focuses on the management aspects of the functional departments and programs and highlights the areas that must be improved in order to implement outstanding systems capability. The book examines the "what and why" of a process and includes a detailed example of a common process model and discusses how to document one. The author builds the case for a matrix structure in which the enterprise has several programs in the house at any one time, the complex problems these programs must solve, and the need for information from many different knowledge domains. He explores the rationale behind placing a generic process under a central management authority with contributions from all functional departments. The book then covers two sets of program planning strings based on the product entity structure and organizes management techniques for the three fundamental system developments efforts: requirements analysis, synthesis, and verification. It concludes with a discussion of assessment and improvement. Recognizing the three areas involved in the development of any new or updated system—the system under development, the enterprise itself, and the program within the enterprise responsible for the development work—this book examines how all three of these systems should be developed using the principals of system engineering. Clearly identifying the important elements of the enterprise and program information sets that have to be skillfully manipulated, it covers strategies that help organizations already using a systems approach fine tune their systems and give those not using a systems approach the tools to develop systems of their own.

With continuous growth in the number of information objects and the users that can access these objects, ensuring that access is compliant with company policies has become a big challenge. Role-based Access Control (RBAC) a policy-neutral access control model that serves as a bridge between academia and industry is probably the most suitable security model for commercial applications. Interestingly, role design determines RBAC's cost. When there are hundreds or thousands of users within an organization, with individual functions and responsibilities to be accurately reflected in terms of access permissions, only a well-defined role engineering process allows for significant savings of time and money while protecting data and systems. Among role engineering approaches, searching through access control systems to find de facto roles embedded in existing permissions is attracting increasing interest. The focus falls on role mining, which is applied data mining techniques to automate to the extent possible the role design task. This book explores existing role mining algorithms and offers insights into the automated role design approaches proposed in the literature. Alongside theory, this book acts as a practical guide for using role mining tools when implementing RBAC. Beside a comprehensive survey of role mining techniques deeply rooted in academic research, this book also provides a summary of the role-based approach, access control concepts and describes a typical role engineering process. Among the pioneering works on role mining, this book blends business elements with data mining theory, and thus further extends the applications of role mining into business practice. This makes it a useful guide for all academics, IT and business professionals.
