Definition Edit

An identity management system (IDMS) generally comprises one or more systems or applications that manages the identity verification, validation and issuance process.

Overview Edit

Components of identity management systems include biometrics, identity cards, and user ID/passwords/personal identification numbers (PIN) to support access control (both physical and logical) and supporting information technology (IT) architectures. To all of this must be added a wealth of laws, regulations, policies, and, above all, awareness of and sensitivity to the attitudes and views of the organizations — including society itself — within which such systems are proposed to be installed and operated. Within the latter, preservation of rights and privileges and protection of privacy are of foremost importance.
