A little background:
Now that you’ve been in the CIO’s position for your first quarter, it is time to prepare for your first review with the board of directors. The agenda for the IS presentation will cover key factors that you discovered in your operations, your accomplishments and your plans for the next year. Since this is the quarter for your next year’s budget, it should contain the funding needed to accomplish the IS plan.
One of the key factors in the review of your operations was discovering the lack of security focus and non-compliance issues that made the operations vulnerable to unwanted intrusion in your network. Listed in your accomplishments is the Security Assessment study and recommendations provided by PathMaker Group when you engaged them for a study of your IS environment. One of their recommendations was to deploy IBM’s Security products for managing Identify and Application Access in your enterprise network. This is an important undertaking as your company will replace the outdated security monitoring with IBM’s Showcase Solution to keep unwanted intruders out while making it easier for the authorized users to have easy access to their applications. As a result of PathMaker Group’s findings and recommendations, you asked them to submit a proposal for the corrective solution using IBM Security Products and PMG Professional Services to deploy them in your IS Network.
This section of your review was very well received by the board of directors and they gave you the approval to get started.Read More»

While integrating Oracle Identity Manager within a corporate environment, sometimes it is important to change some user attributes externally. OIM API provides simple means to perform these operations.
As is the case in any operation, a connection needs to be made to the OIM instance. This is a simple task, but one must ensure that credentials are properly stored and protected.
protected static OIMClient client;
private static String OIMInitialContextFactory = “weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory”;
public OIMConnect(String fileName) throws Exception
Hashtable<String, String> env = new Hashtable<String, String>();
client = new OIMClient(env);
Tivoli Directory Integrator is a powerful tool that we often use as part of an ITIM migration or rollout. What makes it great is its unique ability to translate data from one source of almost any type into another. It really doesn’t matter if you’re using something as a primitive XLS maintained manually by HR or a complex set of relational databases. TDI can get the data, do any number of out of the box or even custom translations that are necessary to get your data into the form you want it.
Through this data “smoothing” process there will inevitably be some odd-ball data that you find. Whether it is a random string value when you expected a Boolean true/false or a legacy attribute that’s only assigned to 25% of the objects you’re migrating.
And then there’s the “null” entry, which will come up often as well. Null values are pesky because we don’t always know why they’re there, sometimes it’s important that the attribute is moved over whether there is a value assigned or not. Other times we want to clean up our data while we’re moving it, and pull out all any attributes assigned with no value. Luckily for us, TDI has a feature built in to assist with this.Read More»
