Enterprise IT Scenarios Demanding Crypto-Agility

Posted by CSS Technical Team on Aug 6, 2018 3:20:50 PM

 In an evolving cyber security landscape, defenses must continually evolve. Static systems are not only inherently insecure, they are less so with each passing day. This principle applies to cryptography as much as to other types of cyber-defenses. And with the advent of quantum computing, most analysts agree that common cryptographic algorithms will eventually become ineffective. The scale of the potential threat is immense — for nearly all the hardware and software we use in both traditional IT environments and burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems.

The end goal is to protect your organization’s reputation by preventing breach and/or downtime by accurately authenticating and authorizing an endpoint, transaction, or data. In essence solid digital identity management always comes back to the security of the same things: people, data, devices and applications.

Best Practices: Optimizing FIM Performance

Posted by CSS Technical Team on Feb 25, 2015 9:58:00 AM

The goal of this article is to provide a checklist for validating Microsoft's Forefront Identity Manager's (FIM) configuration for optimal performance. As there are many different technologies involved in a FIM deployment, I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of articles that would be useful for planning or troubleshooting performance related issues.

This post provides a significant number of things to consider in planning and/or performance optimization of a FIM solution. As with any guidance of this nature, the guidance provided in this article may not apply to all situations and should be earnestly evaluated for applicability against the current design. This document is not specifically arranged in any order or priority, but is intended to form a comprehensive listing of items that may be decreasing performance.
