This Post gives you the basic understanding of IDCS (Oracle Identity Cloud Service) & Things you should know about it.
Today, Security Practice is a crucial undertaking for any enterprise. As trust is essential for the success of the digital business, IDCS is rapidly becoming a key differentiator in the enablement of innovative digital services.
Now the next question which comes to your Mind is, What is Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS)?
Oracle Identity Cloud Service provides identity management, single-sign-on (SSO) and identity governance for applications on-premise, in the cloud and mobile applications.
Any user can access the application at any time, anywhere on a device in a secure manner. Oracle IDCS integrates directly with existing directories and identity management system, making it easier for users to access applications. Providing a platform that is robust and secure, allows users to access, develop and deploy their applications.
The benefits of implementing Oracle Identity Cloud Service are; Improved Business Responsiveness, Enhanced User Productivity and Experience, Hybrid Multi-Channel Access and finally Simplified IT and Reduced Cost.
Below is a diagram which shows how Oracle Identity Cloud is held together.
Advantages of Oracle Identity Cloud Service
- Application security for cloud and on-premises workloads
- Access Certification, Audit, and Compliance for Cloud Apps using OIG (Oracle Identity Governance)
- Move app policies to the cloud as apps and workloads begin moving to the cloud
- Zero-trust design between microservices
- Data security at rest using Transparent Data Encryption and Schema Isolation
- Risk-aware, adaptive access control
- Layered defense spanning Silicon, Infrastructure, DB, Middleware and
SSO and Authorization
- Use SSO and authorization to access applications on-premises and in the cloud from
any device, everywhere.
Things we can do using Oracle IDCS
Single-Sign-On (SSO): by signing in once to IDCS, users gain the one-click access to applications
Identity and Access Management: administrators can manage access to users for the range of applications maintain within the organization, as well as removing access
User Authentication Service: this implements standard OpenID Connect (OIDC) 3-legged User Authentication flows on top of the standard OAuth2 protocol
Identity Federation Service: the provides support for standard SAML3 browser POST login and logout profilesAuthentication, User Consent, Identity Propagation and Web Service Authorization patterns
Reporting Service – This generates dashboard information and reports from collected audit data, There are many ways you can use the Oracle IDCS, which enables administrators and users effectively and securely create, manage and maintain a cloud-based environment
Oracle IDCS is subdivided into three categories, you can choose anyone based on your requirements
- Provisions as part of PaaS offerings like DBCS, OAC, or SOA CS
- SSO between Oracle PaaS & Oracle SaaS
- Foundation + Additional set of IDCS Features
- Pricing is applicable for Enterprise Users and not for non-employee users
- Third Party Cloud Service (Non-Oracle)
- Pricing is applicable for both Enterprise Users and non-employee users
