Why Externalized Authorization? (for Federal Government)

“What will my organization gain from externalized authorization?” It’s a question our team hears often.

Axiomatics understands our dynamic world that requires organizations to be more responsive. Typically, information and application access policies are hard coded into the application. That requires many months of coding efforts and man hours to make any policy changes, which no longer fits with the speed of business today.

The Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) model provides Externalized Dynamic Authorization by leveraging the principle that software code should be decoupled based on the function it serves. Instead of delivering applications with authorization hard-coded, the software developer simply implements core business functionality and reuses common blocks for nonfunctional aspects such as authentication, logging, and data storage.

In this piece, we cover the Key Benefits of Externalized Dynamic Authorization for the Federal Government. We also dispel some common misconceptions of Externalized Authorization.
