Which of the following is an example of the implementation of identification?
A. A new employee is given a unique identifier to log on to a system B. An administrator uses system records to identify suspicious activity C. A manager is granted permission to access a resource D. The identifier a user enters is compared to identifiers stored on the system
In every company security is vital and with everything now on file in computer systems, data control is paramount. Whether a certain individual can access one part or all of the data s/he seeks comes down to control of identity. Lanyards are the norm in even small organisations for access to the building itself, but in the IT system that holds all the company data, it is essential to develop identification implementation strategies.
Increasingly there is sophisticated software produced for companies to use for this, using such concepts as privacy-preserving, minimal disclosure, zero-knowledge proofs, and so on. In sales environments, a MyDomain may suffice to allow salesforce to access full entry, with a different sub-domain, clients may access the website main features. Any strategy for ensuring identity is what it seems, is an implementation.
