A Client-Centric Identity Management Tool for Small and Medium Enterprises Using Cloud Services
Sprache des Titels:
4th Workshop on Software Services
We propose a client-centric tool to facilitate the adoption of cloud-based services by small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Our approach allows for a quick and seamless integration between the cloud provider's identity management system and the system used by the client (SME). We introduce the concept of an Identity Management Machine (IdMM), based on ASMs, whose purpose is to handle the interaction between the two systems. The IdMM serves as a proxy that performs automatic authentication and authorization for individual users as well as handle identity provisioning and de-provisioning. With the adoption of such a system the client's directory service remains hidden and the IdMM only offers as much information as necessary, thus providing a privacy enhanced solution.
