Identity and Access Management (IAM) is now a critical component of any organization’s security policy. IAM helps restrict your organization’s exposure and decreases risk by ensuring that only the right personnel access specific systems and data. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is a strategy used by many IAM systems to assign rights for who can do what within specific IT roles like applications, based on the organization’s structure and the users’ roles.
A Role-Based Access Control model in SailPoint offers a Role-Based mechanism. In any organization, entitlement in SailPoint is not left alone. When anyone joins an organization, they will find a particular job role in that organization. SailPoint architecture offers two-tier of Role-Based modeling.
In SailPoint, entitlements or permissions serve as the foundation for role modeling. We logically organize entitlements into role models when we link entitlements and encapsulate entitlements inside a role model.
Business roles are generic roles that a user can join, such as Manager or Security Analyst. We’ll map the IT roles required to execute their jobs inside each of these roles. If a Manager joins an organization, he must access the following applications (app1, app5, app7, app8, and app10). The access is automatically encapsulated if the organization assigns this manager job role to someone else. As a result, when a new member joins an organization, they are allocated a business role, and whatever access is encapsulated will automatically be assigned to them.
These access privileges are given to the user automatically. A business indicates their entitlement further inside each of these applications. For example, if they are given access such as reading access or execution access, then by default, it goes in birthright positioning. When you provide a specific person a business role one by one, all of the encapsulating access will be provisioned automatically. It signifies that businesses have centralized entitlements into a defined job in any organization, indicating that they prefer one to several mappings and concentrate on how access is governed. Control Association is used to map IT roles within business roles.
Control Association: When we map business roles in a permitted or required manner, any mapped IT roles will be assigned automatically. And anything a user has marked as permitted will allow them to request those positions.
In short, RBAC (Role-Based Access Control) enables users to create and enforce restricted access by assigning a set of permissions. Permissions are assigned based on the level of access that specific user profiles need to perform the job. In other words, depending on their job role and tasks, different people in any organization may have different kinds of authorized access.
RBAC has various benefits for organizations:
The RBAC has four models:
