Some of the identity and access systems employed by the financial services sector are fragmented, incompatible, and operate in isolation from one another, making their operation complex and prone to errors and inconsistencies that can be exploited by attackers or insider threats. The financial services sector needs the ability to centrally issue, validate, and modify or revoke access rights for an entire enterprise based on easy-to-understand busines rules. This situation makes it difficult for enterprises to securely embrace new technologies such as mobile and cloud computing.
The goal of this use case is to demonstrate ways to link the management of existing disparate identity and access mechanisms and systems into a comprehensive identity and access management (IDAM) solution. This will enable financial sector entities to centrally issue, validate, and modify or revoke access rights for their entire enterprise based on easy-to-understand business rules.
