Single Sign-On in a Single Day 

Presented by
Jack Mc Afee of TriAWorks, Inc. 

  You will learn how to create a Single Sign-On for your iSeries based on IBM's simple, yet powerful Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM) infrastructure.  

 The three groups of people affected by having more than one user profile and password are: (1) end users; (2) administrators; and (3) application developers.  All three groups can benefit from implementing a Single Sign-On.

 For OS/400 and i5/OS, the EIM and Kerberos solution actually does away with passwords, does not require the underlying authorization scheme to change, and is already deployed (integrated into the operating system and supported by IBM). Most importantly, it can be incrementally implemented.

 TriAWorks provides a complete identity management solution.  Their solution will be robust, quick and easy to deploy, and simply priced.  It will enable companies to maintain user identities on multiple registries across their enterprise.
