Red Hat Customer Content Services


The main feature of Red Hat Identity Management (IdM) is the management of users, groups, hosts, and access control rules, such as host-based access control (HBAC) and role-based access control (RBAC). You can configure them by using the command line, the IdM Web UI, and Ansible Playbooks.
The management tasks include configuring Kerberos policies and security, automating group memberships, and delegating permissions.
