The concepts of Authentication and Authorization play an important role for securing services and data. With the emergence of Multi- and Hybrid-Cloud Patterns a new challenge arises for secure Authentication across domains, while privacy of employee or customer information is more important than ever.
In this talk we want to explain some of the key challenges with today’s Identity & Access Management (IAM) and why we ultimately built a new open source IAM, ZITADEL, to change the traditional business-model and principles of IAM solutions for example by
Optimizing for day-two operations and elasticity with a cloud-native architecture
Including all security-related functions (like MFA, Passwordless) in the core of the product
Building a solid audit trail through event-sourcing
Encouraging automation and easy integration of lifecycle management
You will gain a better understanding of IAM concepts and themes such as
Federation / IAM Service
Human to machine interaction (SSO, Passwordless)
Machine to machine interaction (Service Accounts, Delegation)
User and access management self-service
Workflow integration with APIs & Webhooks
