Welcome to Module 05 of the CISSP certification course at Cybrary.it! We kick off this module with a review and continuation of identity and access management. Access controls objectives are concerned with IAAA: Identification, Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting. We'll go into detail on these controls in the next section. For now, understand that identification is a claim as to who you are and authentication is based on either something you know, something you have, or something you do. Authorization is concerned with what you're allowed to do and accounting is the process of auditing and tracking what you do. We then touch on single sign on. Its advantages as well as the risks associated with the freedom it provides. The video then concludes with mentioning topics that we'll be discussing in upcoming sections such as access control models, access control methods, access control administration, and data emanation.
