Novell Identity Manager is a data sharing and synchronization service that enables applications, directories, and databases to share information. It links scattered information and enables you to establish policies that govern automatic updates to designated systems when identity changes occur. Identity Manager provides the foundation for account provisioning, security, single sign-on, user self-service, authentication, authorization, automated workflow, and Web services. It allows you to integrate, manage, and control your distributed identity information so you can securely deliver the right resources to the right people.
This guide contains information about how to plan, install, or upgrade an Identity Manager system that is useful for your environment.
This guide is intended for administrators, consultants, and network engineers who plan and implement Identity Manager in a network environment.
