Identity and Access Management

Identity and access management (IAM) is a framework focused on managing user identities and access permissions on a computer network. This includes authentication and authorization. Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a user attempting to connect to InterSystems IRIS. InterSystems IRIS supports several different authentication mechanisms. Once authenticated, a user can communicate with InterSystems IRIS and use its tools and resources. Authorization is the process of determining which database assets a user can use, view, or change.
