iam defined
IAM Defined

IAM is an administrative process coupled with a technological solution which validates the identity of individuals and allows owners of data, applications, and systems to either maintain centrally or distribute responsibility for granting access to their respective resources to anyone participating within the IAM framework.

iam goals goal 1
IAM Goals – Goal #1

Establish a community of people and organizations who understand each others pressures, needs, and desires in identity and access management for the purposes of maintaining and developing as nimble a set of infrastructures possible to facilitate academic, business, and collaborative processes

iam goals goal 2
IAM Goals – Goal #2

Develop a Penn State roadmap for Identity and Access Management that can be used to help marshal the energy necessary to get to where we all need to go

five areas of focus
Five Areas of Focus
  • Life Cycles and Affiliations
  • Vetting, Proofing, and Registration Authorities
  • Levels of Assurance
  • Risk Assessment
  • Governance and Policy
life cycles and affiliations
Life Cycles and Affiliations
  • The goal of this group is to define the many affiliations (customers, employees, etc) the University currently has and that can be envisioned in the future.
  • This group will also make recommendations regarding when each affiliation officially begins and ends; identifying the various stages of the life cycle, as well as the current processes for creating identities, along with recommendations on process improvement.
example of affiliations
Example of Affiliations
  • Staff (may include attributes such as leave of absence, pending, current, postdoc, future, recent) - [is future the same as pending? kgf '9-7-2007']
  • Faculty (may include attributes such as leave of absence, pending, current', future, recent) - [is future the same as pending? kgf 9-7-2007]
  • Student (may include attributes such as withdrawn, military withdrawn, leave of absence', future, recent')
  • Former Student
  • Visiting Staff
  • Visiting Faculty (also includes visiting scholars and fellows?)
  • Visiting Student
  • Furloughed Employee
vetting proofing and ra s
Vetting, Proofing, and RA’s
  • This group will identify all registration authorities, evaluate the current processes, and make recommendations to align the processes with recommendations of the federal government's guidelines for levels of assurance while adding value to the business processes of the University.
  • This group will also recommend vetting and proofing processes for both in person and remote registration of individuals.
vetting proofing and ra s recommendations
Vetting, Proofing, and RA’sRecommendations
  • Provide a Web based, self serve, password reset website for all.
  • Eliminate multiple passwords at Penn State University.
  • Merge FPS/Access Accounts into one identity domain
  • Tightly couple proofing and distribution of id and password
  • Process and information required for vetting at various levels
  • Process required for proofing
level of assurance loa
Level of Assurance (LoA)
  • Level of Assurance (LoA) describes the degree of certainty that the user has presented an identifier (a credential in this context) that refers to his or her identity. In this context, assurance is defined as:
    • the degree of confidence in the vetting process used to establish the identity of the individual to whom the credential was issued, and the degree of confidence that the individual who uses the credential is the individual to whom the credential was issued.

  • Organizational Maturity
  • Registration and Identity Proofing

  • Token Strength
  • Status Management
  • Delivery Confirmation
recommended penn state loa s
Recommended Penn State LoA’s
  • Level 0: No confidence in the asserted identity’s validity
  • Level 1: Little confidence in the asserted identity’s validity.
  • Level 2: Some confidence in the asserted identity’s validity.
  • Level 3: High confidence in the asserted identity’s validity
  • Level 4: Very high confidence in the asserted identity’s validity.
risk assessment1
Risk Assessment

This group will work closely with the data classification and IPAS group to make recommendations on using levels of assurance, vetting and proofing, etc. to recommend the process for assessing risk associated with transactions and data.

risk assessment2
Risk Assessment
  • Possible Data Categories
    • Public
    • Internal/Controlled
    • Restricted
risk assessment3
Risk Assessment
  • Each data category would have a minimum level of assurance assigned to it for authentication and authorization requirements. It is likely that sub-categories or differing levels of assurance would be assigned to a data classification level, but a minimum level for the category must be assigned.
governance and policy
Governance and Policy

This group will evaluate current policies related to identity and access management at Penn State making recommendations to changes or creation of policy and/or governance.

governance and policy1
Governance and Policy
  • Gap Analysis
    • Penn State Policies
