In 1992 the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published a paper on Role Based Access Control (RBAC). For years to come RBAC remained the predominant model for access control and the NIST publications on this topic most certainly influenced this development.

By and by, the limitations of RBAC became more apparent and NIST researchers and analysts have looked at alternatives. In 2009 the Federal Chief Information Officers Council (Federal CIO Council) published its Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) roadmap and implementation plan with ABAC as the recommended model for access control. The NIST Special Publication 800-162 with guidelines for ABAC broadly discusses the advantages of a shift to ABAC.

In this webinar we will look at the NIST recommendations in the light of our own and our customers’ implementations experiences.

The webinar will cover:

  • The key ABAC advantages according to NIST
  • How they compare with customer experiences
  • How your organization can take advantage of them

The webinar will be hosted by Axiomatics’ Americas President and resident IAM expert Gerry Gebel.
