Identity management, also known as identity and access management (IAM) is, in computer security, the security and business discipline that "enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times and for the right reasons".
Java Authentication and Authorization Service, or JAAS, pronounced "Jazz", is the Java implementation of the standard Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) information security framework.
Kerberos is a computer network authentication protocol that works on the basis of tickets to allow nodes communicating over a non-secure network to prove their identity to one another in a secure manner.
Linux is a family of free and open-source software operating systems built around the Linux kernel.
Linux Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) provide dynamic authentication support for applications and services in a Linux or GNU/kFreeBSD system.
