1.2 Understanding the Identity Intelligence Components

The following table describes the components incorporated into the Identity Intelligence environment.

Software/Component

Description

Data sources

Provide identity governance data to Identity Intelligence through drivers or special utilities

For example, Identity Manager and Identity Governance

SmartConnector for Syslog NG Daemon

Collects the following types of data, and then sends the data to Transformation Hub for processing:

Entity Data Model Driver

Collects entity data from Identity Manager, and then sends the data to Transformation Hub for processing

Identity Governance Fact Configuration Utility

Collects data from Identity Governance

Transformation Hub

Receives audit events and entity data from publishers such as SmartConnectors, driver, or IG Fact. It centralizes data collection and sends data to Vertica

Vertica

Stores Identity Intelligence data, which includes all collected events; user and entity profile content; users and permissions; and View content

Analytics (framework)

Provides a high-capacity data management and search engine that enables you to search data stored in Vertica from the Identity Intelligence user interface

Network File System (NFS)

Stores some of the persistent data generated by Transformation Hub, Identity Intelligence, and Analytics

Identity Intelligence

Standardizes and processes data from Vertica and stores the processed data in Vertica.

Identity Intelligence User Interface (UI)

Provides a browser-based console where you can create Views and review the Profiles of users and access rights

For more information, see the User Guide (also available in the UI)

ArcSight Management Center (ArcMC)

(Optional)

A centralized management interface that helps you to effectively administrate and monitor software and components such as Transformation Hub and SmartConnectors
