Earlier this week, @Yves Debeer and I hosted an online event featuring Verify SaaS in the context of CIAM, consumer IAM. The event consisted of three parts each lasting about 45 minutes. See below for a description of these three parts.
Similar to previous webinars, the focus was again on showing things - "show, don't tell".
The presentations are in the IBM Community library: Replay of the online event "Consumer IAM with Verify SaaS" on October 17, 2023
The replays are on our YouTube channel: youtube.com/@cybersecurity-force
The three parts were:
Part 1: An overview of Verify SaaS.
After a few slides to give an overview of Verify SaaS, we gave a demo by means of a 'classic' workforce use case: an employee requests access to SalesForce, that access gets approved, and the employee can then use the Verify SaaS IdP to get secure, MFA-enforced access to SalesForce. The demo also includes how the use case was configured: the connector to SalesForce, the access policy, the MFA config, and so on.
Part 2: A demo on how to implement CIAM for your website.
We introduced CIAM by discussing CIAM building blocks: CEMA = Capture. Engage. Manage. Administer. Then we gave a 30-minute demo on how a fictitious insurance company, TrustMeInsurance, makes use of Verify SaaS services to implement frictionless IAM user experiences. The demo shows how Verify SaaS and the demo app was configured.
Part 3: Development of a complete passwordless workflow for consumers
We shortly introduced the concept of passkeys. Passkeys are mostly used for passwordless authentication, but the account registration typically includes the user having to provide a password. However, we built an app where neither registration nor authentication does not involve the user setting a password. We explain step by step how that app was built. And of course, also show this complete password-free user experience.
