OCI Identity and Access Management

Manage user access and entitlements for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and across a wide range of cloud and on-premises applications using a cloud native, identity as a service (IDaaS) platform. Oracle offers a unified cloud identity solution that centers user identity as the security perimeter and helps organizations pursue a zero trust strategy.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (OCI IAM)

Manage access for complex global organizations

Empower IT teams to easily manage access to applications and cloud infrastructure across a complex organization while maintaining continuous visibility and control.

Manage identities for cloud and on-premises

Enable a unified approach to identity and access management with cloud-based workflows, simplified user provisioning, and user self-service. OCI IAM utilizes open standards-based integrations that reduce overhead and maintenance.

Streamline identity tasks

Reduces the need for repetitive user, role, and group changes across multiple environments. OCI IAM provides bridges, proxies, and gateways to manage identity entitlement across on-premises and cloud services.

Pursue a zero trust strategy

Enforce access policies using a cloud-based service for single sign-on (SSO), strong password enforcement, and multifactor authentication (MFA). Adaptive authentication reduces risk by increasing login requirements when user access is deemed high risk based on device, location, or user activities.

Manage consumer access to services

Enrich the consumer access experience with self-service user interfaces and brand-customizable login screens, social logon, and terms-of-use consent management. Integrate third party services and custom applications using REST APIs and standards-based integration.

Benefits of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management

  • Facilitate secure authentication

    Enable secure sign-on with flexible options, including adaptive, context-aware intelligence, strong multifactor authentication, federated logon from external identity providers, social logon, and delegated authentication to Active Directory.

  • Manage users and access

    Automate user lifecycle management across cloud and on-premises and simplify control over which applications users can access and which roles or entitlements they should be granted. Control access to OCI resources such as networking, compute, and storage resources using a flexible, easy to understand policy syntax.

  • Add IAM functionality to custom-developed applications

    Embed IAM features such as self-registration, social logon, strong authentication, self-service management of profiles/passwords, and terms-of-use consent. With robust APIs, SDKs, and sample code, developers can easily add robust IAM functionality reducing time and effort while improving security and enhancing the user experience.

Easier, stronger, and smarter authentication with passkeys in OCI IAM

Atul Goyal, Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle
Venkata Evani, Consulting Member of Technical Staff, Oracle

Imagine ditching your passwords and no longer having to remember or manage a different password for every website you visit. Passkeys provide an authentication approach that replaces passwords with a strong, phishing-resistant authentication mechanism that's already built into many user devices. A supported feature of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (OCI IAM), passkeys provide a form of passwordless authentication creating a simpler and more secure sign-in experience for users.
