Recently I've been thinking about what happens to an identity through its life cycle and how the identity data is treated during this process.  I think you will also see that the Enterprise itself has differing methods of dealing with it as well. I am considering this to be the beginning of a framework and nomenclature that one can use for expressing how people relate to their Identity data on a number of different levels. I think we can pretty much consider this to be a "work in progress," and I would greatly appreciate feedback. So why do we need this, anyway? I have observed that organizations, consulting groups, and other industry experts relate to Identity based information.

Doing a Linux Based Victory Lap

OK, I admit it, when I solve a particularly confounding problem, I like to get up, proclaim “Victory Lap!” and walk around in a small circle (Sometimes two for bigger problems). I think it's important to celebrate development successes particularly when they result in helping to really move progress ahead. I’d like to share with you folks my latest cause for a Victory Lap. My current project is requiring me to install Virtual Directory Server for HCM and GRC along with an IDM Dispatcher on a Red Hat LINUX server.  Now I’ve dabbled with LINUX before and even run it as my personal...

SECUDE’s Secure SignOn Version 7.2 Supports Windows 7 Platform

Darmstadt, December 11, 2009 - Multiple login procedures with different user name/password combinations are often productivity-sapping inconvenience for employees. Corporate regulations on password complexity do not provide sufficient security. Users just write down complex passwords instead of memorizing them. Such practices are a great security risk making vital data easily accessible to unauthorized personal.
