CIAM and IRM, the reality behind the acronyms
In our hyper-connected world, Identities are not isolated entities anymore, but are rather actors in a large web of interrelated objects. Identity relationships carry context and meaning that can be used to make decisions about authentication and authorization. Nowhere is this more relevant than in the fields of Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) and Identity Relationship Management (IRM). This session will provide some background and real-life examples of identity relationships and their application in CIAM and IRM in general - from organizations implementing 360 views of their world-wide client base, and the ensuing authentication and authorization challenges, to IOT manufacturers trying to implement complex Access rules. Through these examples, we will show that an approach that places relationships first is the best way to tackle these problems. We propose that Graph models are the best way to implement these relationships. We will thus discuss some graph models that we have successfully used to solve these often complex problems at scale.
