External Identities, and Internal Identities can also be managed with Federation, or Federated Access Management.
Federation is an arrangement of trust between two parties, in which the party providing access, would trust the party requiring access, to manage who has access to what resources.
If an IAM System is configured in this way, company "A” would trust company “B”, allowing Company "B's" users to gain access to Company "A's" resources.
Company "B's" users would authenticate to their own Company "B" system, which would have certain rights inherited from Company "A".
This allows the two organizations a mutual beneficial trust, with access control.
With IDHub, controlling organizational resource access can be done both ways.
The most important concept in Identity Management, for both internal and external identities, is to secure sensitive organizational information while maintaining the Principle of Least Privilege to keep all systems secure.
