Red Hat: Evaluating Total Cost of Ownership of the Identity Management Solution
0

During last several months I’ve seen a rapid growth of interest in Red Hat’s Identity Management (IdM) solution. This might have been due to different reasons.

  • First of all IdM has become much more mature and well known. In the past you come to a conference and talk about FreeIPA (community version of IdM) and IdM and you get a lot of people in the audience that have never heard about it. It is not the case any more. IdM, as a solution, is well known now. There are thousands of the deployments all over the world both using Red Hat supported and community bits. Many projects and open source communities implemented integration with it as an identity back end. There is no surprise that customers who are looking for a good, cost effective identity management solution are now aware of it and start considering it. This leads to questions, calls, face-to-face meetings and presentations.
  • Another reason is that IdM/FreeIPA project has been keeping an ear to the ground and was quick to adjust its plans and implement features in response to some of the tightening regulations in different verticals. Let us, for example,  consider the government space. Over the last couple of years, the policies became more strict requiring a robust solution for two-factor-authentication using CAC and PIV smart cards. IdM responded by adding support for smart cards based authentication making it easy to achieve compliance with the mentioned regulations.
  • Yet another reason is that more and more customers realize that moving to a modern Identity Management system is going to enable them to more quickly and easily transition into the age of hybrid cloud, taking advantage of both public and on premises clouds like OpenStack, and as well as to the world of containers and container management platforms like OpenShift.

One of the main questions people ask when they hear about the IdM solution is: Is Identity Management in Red Hat Enterprise Linux free? It is. Identity Management in Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a component of the platform and not a separately licensable product. What does this mean? This means that you can install IdM on any Red Hat Enterprise Linux server system with a valid subscription and get support from Red Hat.
