Identity is the new security perimeter. Access can be determined based on a persona, a role, or a user type. Identity and Access Management (IAM), then, is the foundation for access to any secured computer resource and must be handled and managed carefully and deliberately. This course will provide students with the skills they'll need to succeed at designing and implementing access control mechanisms on networked systems. The course covers the principles and mechanisms that compose an overall IAM system and supports the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-181, National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (otherwise known as the NICE Framework). Recommended prerequisite: ICT 4605.
