Why Identity Management is Hard

Identity Management is a concept that is gaining a lot of press these days. That publicity has not turned into a large market share for IDM solutions.

This talk will explain why Identity Management is hard. It will use FreeRADIUS as an example product for managing network identity, and network policies.

We will explain what Identity Management means to a network administrator, and what it means to a vendor selling IDM solutions. The talk will bridge the gap between the two mind sets. It will show how we can make IDM easier to deploy, and how IDM solutions can increase network security.
