Industry Keynote: Rethinking Identity Access Management and The Rise of the Developer
Everything is famously code-integrated today—cars are computers with wheels, appliances have Internet access, smart doors and houses are controlled from mobile phone apps, etc. With all this code around, security is more of a challenge than ever. A central pillar of security is identity access management (IAM): the technology that protects logins and controls access.
In fact, this too, is becoming code to work with all the other code. Libraries for developers are essential, including ID controls in mobile and Web applications for initial sign on, single sign-on, federated sign-on, biometric authentication systems, and sensitive data access control. To maintain security across devices, IAM code must be wherever it’s needed, when it’s needed, and automated, just like any other code. And the better we do this, the more safeguarded we all are with our ubiquitous computers.
