Popis zakázky:

(a) Purpose of the contract:

The provision, design, configuration, implementation and operation of an Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform as a managed service for the EPO.

The platform consists of 3 components:

  1. Identity Governance and Administration module: This module will constitute the corporate directory for all EPO electronic identities (employees, partners and customers). It will be connected to EPO identity sources and target systems for user provisioning.
  2. Authentication module: This module will act as a centralised authentication engine for the majority of EPO systems. It will support various authentication methods and federation scenarios, acting as an identity provider.
  3. Authentication Token Management module: This module will be employed by EPO users to manage the lifecycle (request, reset, disable, etc.) of their authentication tokens (passwords, smartcards), etc.

The IAM platform shall manage all provisioning and authentication activities for EPO users (approximately: 9 000 employees, 20 000 customers and 6 000 partners). EPO already supports identity federation with external partners, single sign on and multifactor authentication. All these functionalities, now managed by different systems, shall be integrated in the IAM Platform.
