Oracle Identity Management and Identity Stores
- 463 Downloads
Many organizations have multiple identity stores to support various business units and processes. These identity stores might be in the form of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)-compatible directories, database tables, or other formats. In many cases, Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) can be used to manage these various directory formats using Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD). Although this book concentrates on using Oracle Internet Directory (OID) as the primary identity store using LDAP synchronization, it is important to consider this configuration as a possible solution when your environment necessitates it. You might also find it useful to configure the LDAP synchronization to use OVD to start with and prepare the environment for multiple data stores.
