Siniša Jojić (2008) Identity management using the »CA Identity Manager« software tool. EngD thesis.
In modern times, managing an ever increasing number of user identities and entitlements to important data is becoming a substantial challenge for large organizations. This has resulted in an onset of a large number of different identity and access management solutions. Most of these solutions are targeted to address only specific functionalities within the larger realm of identity and access management, while a handful of major vendors (CA Inc., IBM, Sun Microsystems, Novell) opts for a holistic approach, as the only way to address the needs of the largest organizations. In my diploma thesis, I have described the CA Identity Manager product, a solution for automation and management of user-oriented services such as creation, modification and deletion of user accounts and entitlements on IT business systems. Since the technical part of the solution serves predominantly as a cataliser of organizational/process changes and less as a self-contained information system, I have decided to use the project approach as the main building block of my thesis. My primary goal here was the solution’s basic life cycle demonstration, with accent on the changes introduced by the project on process and technical layers, ranging from planning to realization.
