IBM Cloud Identity Verify (CIV) is Authentication-as-a-Service (AaaS). It provides a simple REST API which authorized clients can call to initiate a variety of 2nd Factor Authentication (2FA) mechanisms.

This cookbook explores how to integrate a web application, in this case a simple NodeJS Express application, with Cloud Identity Verify. The following Cloud Identity capabilities will be used:

  • Username and Password Authentication

  • QR Code (password-less) Authentication

  • SMS (or e-mail) One Time Password 2nd Factor Authentication

  • User information lookup

In this demonstration of IBM Cloud Identity Connect, you will learn how you can make the most of your bundled IBM Security Access Manager entitlement in order to provide integration with on-premise directories, such as Active Directory, and also how to make use of the strong authentication capabilities in Access Manager for securing your SaaS services.

Configure Access Manager as a Cloud Identity Verify (CIV) Client cookbook

IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) has built-in functionality to allow it to integrate with an IBM Cloud Identity tenant and use the authentication services provided by CIV. This allows applications integrated with ISAM to use the same authentication services as applications directly integrated with CIV.

This cookbook provides a step-by-step guide to integrating an ISAM system with the AaaS capabilities of your IBM Cloud Identity tenant.

Multi-Factor Authentication Everywhere with Cloud Identity Verify - cookbook

IBM Cloud Identity Verify (CIV) is Authentication-as-a-Service (AaaS). It provides a simple REST API which authorized clients can call to initiate a variety of 2nd Factor Authentication (2FA) mechanisms. In addition to the REST interface, IBM also provides a number of “IBM Verify Gateway” applications which allow integration of CIV capabilities with other authentication frameworks:

  • IBM Verify Gateway for RADIUS

  • IBM Verify Gateway for PAM (on Linux)

  • IBM Verify Gateway for PAM (on AIX)

  • IBM Verify Gateway for Windows Login

This cookbook provides a step-by-step guide to exploring these integration components.

Setting up G-Suite as a SAML 2.0 identity provider

If your organization uses Google G Suite for user authentication, you can configure IBM Security Cloud Identity to allow your users to log in using their G Suite credentials.

This course provides a lab setup and step-by-step instructions on how to set up the SAML 2.0 federation between Cloud Identity and G Suite to configure G Suite as an identity source. G Suite is used as a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) and the Cloud Identity acts as a SAML Service Provider (SP).

First steps in IBM Security Verify APIs

This course describes the first steps in using IBM Security Verify application programming interfaces, or APIs, and how to use APIs to integrate applications with IBM Security Verify.

Configuring SSO for Office 365

This course demonstrates how to configure a basic SSO integration between IBM Security Cloud Identity and Microsoft’s Office 365 applications. In this integration, Cloud Identity acts as a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) and Office 365 is configured as a SAML Service Provider (SP). With this integration, users can access their Office 365 applications by using their Cloud Identity credentials.

Configuring Verify (Cloud Identity) and ADFS for zero-touch authentication in MaaS360

In this lab, you explore integrating IBM MaaS360, IBM security Verify (Cloud Identity), and Active Directory Federation Service (ADFS). In this scenario, Cloud Identity acts as an alternate IaaS (Identity as a Service) provider to ADFS so when ADFS detects a mobile device user, it redirects the authentication request to Cloud Identity. Cloud Identity works with MaaS360 to manage device compliance and enrollment requirements. This lab walks you through integrating all 3 tools in a cohesive, zero-touch, architecture that does not impact your business operations.

How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Remote Work - IBM Security MaaS360 and Cloud Identity

Whether it’s a document sent over Slack or a game of conference call bingo unfolding on Zoom, telecommuting infrastructure has permeated our working lives. The workplace and classroom have both transformed overnight from cubicles and desks to couches and kitchens.

As employees or students shift to working or learning from home, a diverse range of endpoints need to be managed and protected – including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Cloud applications should also be deployed to support those trends—providing business continuity for organizations while enabling a frictionless experience for users. This is accomplished via unified endpoint management (UEM), identity and access management (IAM), and web-centric threat defense working in concert.

Further, it’s just as imperative to effectively secure those applications and the devices users rely on for access—whether an organization-issued laptop or a personal tablet.

A program like bring your own device (BYOD), while implying usage in the office, is more of a concern at home due to the risks of unsecured WiFi, unauthorized users, risky downloads and web traffic, and the potential for phishing attacks to compromise credentials.

However, those same problems tend to crop up on organization-issued devices as well—typically deemed a more secure asset. Ultimately, regardless of the device, the human behind the machine presents the risk.
