Course: Managing accounts in Entrust IdentityGuard
Managing accounts in Entrust IdentityGuard is a two-day, instructor-led, hands-on overview of account management operations in Entrust IdentityGuard. Course participants will assume the role of an end-user administrator and will log into Entrust IdentityGuard Administration from their Web browser to perform basic management operations, including creating and editing accounts and assigning authentication types.
The course begins with a discussion of the security requirement of authentication and participants will review different authentication methods. Entrust IdentityGuard is introduced as a solution for authenticating the identity of users and an overview of the components of the Entrust IdentityGuard environment will be presented. Course participants will perform administrative operations using Entrust IdentityGuard Administration through a standard Web browser; bulk operations will also be discussed as a way of automating some of the administrative operations.
As part of the course, participants will assign authentication types to accounts, including grids, hardware tokens, software tokens, machine information, and one-time passwords.
Hands-on exercises at the end of each lesson provide participants with the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained through the lecture portion of the lesson.
