IBM Security Identity Manager is an automated and
policy-based solution that manages user access across IT environments,
helping to drive effective identity management and governance across the
enterprise. By using roles, accounts, and access permissions, it helps
automate the creation, modification, and termination of user privileges
throughout the entire user lifecycle. IBM Security Identity Manager can
help increase user efficiency, reduce IT administration costs, enforce
security, and manage compliance.

The user interface (UI) for IBM Identity Manager (IIM), called the Identity Service Center (ISC), is designed to be an easy-to-use interface for managers and end users who might not necessarily have a strong technical background.
You can use the Identity Service Center console to request access, approve access, manage your profile, delegate your activities, view your requests, change passwords, and reset your forgotten password. The Identity Service Center console is highly customizable. You can customize the graphics, icons, and tasks to meet the needs of your organization.
This lab has two parts. The exercises in the first part describe how to use the Identity Service Center console in IBM Identity Manager V188.8.131.52. The second part teaches you how to customize the Identity Service Center console.
This lab provides a brief introduction to IBM Identity Manager (IIM) 184.108.40.206 administration. You learn how to configure and use IBM Identity Manager for access management. It is suitable for system administrators who manage Identity Manager in an organization.
The lab has three parts. The first part includes administrative tasks such as managing organizational structure, roles, users, services, policies, and approvals. The second part teaches you how to use IIM as an end user to request access and approve the request as a manager. The third part contains Active Directory integration exercises.
IBM Identity Manager provides a self-signed certificate for the Virtual appliance's access. This video demonstrates how to replace the default certificate with an SSL certficate trusted by a certificate authority. It also includes instructions how to create a new certificate authority (CA) and a trusted certificate using the OpenSSL utility.
This document describes best practices for implementing the most commonly used customization and extensions for ISIM version 7.0 and also describes limits in these areas.
