    • How to access the Tools and Templates
    • Style conventions in the papers
    • Consulting services and system integrators
    • Independent hardware and software vendors

    Fundamental Concepts.doc

    This paper describes key concepts, terminology, and technologies for identity and access management. It includes common business, technology, and security challenges and approaches for overcoming these challenges.

    Platform and Infrastructure.doc

    This paper describes the common platform requirements and technology infrastructure for identity and access management solutions.

    Identity Aggregation and Synchronization.doc

    This paper describes the approaches and technologies available for integrating identity stores across a heterogeneous environment. It also provides implementation guidance for identity aggregation and synchronization between Microsoft Active Directory forests, Sun ONE Directory Server 5.1 (formerly iPlanet Directory Server), and Lotus Notes with Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003, Enterprise Edition (MIIS 2003) with Service Pack 1 (SP1).

    Password Management.doc

    This paper describes the approaches and technologies available for managing passwords and enforcing strong password policy. The paper includes step-by-step implementation guidance for:
    • Managing intranet passwords
    • Managing extranet passwords
    • Enforcing strong password policy

    Provisioning and Workflow.doc

    This paper discusses how to automatically provision identities into multiple directories and identity stores in a heterogeneous environment. It also discusses managing security and e-mail group memberships, and describes a workflow process that can extend automated processes. You can use the information in this paper to enable the automated administration of user identities and reduce costs while you increase the availability and security of information resources. This paper also provides detailed configuration tasks that you can use to achieve these results by using MIIS 2003 with SP1.

    Intranet Access Management.doc

    This paper describes the approaches available for intranet single sign on (SSO), access management, and platform and application integration. It also provides implementation guidance for:
    • Integrating UNIX workstations with Active Directory.
    • Integrating SAP R/3 Application Server authentication using the Kerberos version 5 authentication protocol.

    Extranet Access Management.doc

    This paper describes the approaches available for extranet SSO, access management, and providing business-to-consumer (B2C), business-to-business (B2B), and business-to-employee (B2E) services. It also provides implementation guidance for:
    • B2E extranet Web access and SSO using X.509 certificates.
    • B2C extranet Web access and SSO using Microsoft Passport.

    Developing Identity-Aware ASP.NET Applications.doc

    This paper discusses how to develop ASP.NET multi-tier extranet and intranet Web applications in Microsoft Visual C# and Microsoft Visual Basic .NET that are integrated with Microsoft Windows Server 2003 directory and security services. It also provides detailed implementation guidance and ASP.NET code samples (in C# and VB.NET) for:
    • Intranet Web applications that use Windows-integrated authentication and Windows Authorization Manager.
    • Extranet Web applications for B2B, B2C, and B2E scenarios using Windows authentication (including Forms-based authentication, X.509 certificates, and Microsoft Passport) and Windows Authorization Manager.
