IBM has recently released the Redbook, “Identity Management Design Guide with IBM Tivoli Identity Manager ”. This IBM Redbook provides a methodology for designing an Identity Management solution with IBM Tivoli Identity Manager 4.6. Starting from the high-level, organizational viewpoint IBM shows how to define user registration and maintenance processes using the self-registration and self-care interfaces as well as the delegated administration capabilities.
Identity Management is the concept of providing a unifying interface to manage all aspects related to individuals and their interactions with the business. It is the process that enables business initiatives by efficiently managing the user lifecycle (including identity/resource provisioning for people (users)), and by integrating into the required business processes. Identity management encompasses all the data and processes related to the representation of an individual involved in electronic transactions.
