The tutorial will provide a hands-on introduction to FreeIPA - an integrated identity management solution. The FreeIPA project brings together several industry-proven technologies such as LDAP or Kerberos. Easy-to-use installation scripts and both command line and browser-based interfaces make previously complex task of rolling out enterprise identity management easy, scalable and accessible.
We'll demonstrate the installation, setup and several tasks such as user management or establishing a trust setup with an Active Directory domain. We'll also show the advantages of using the SSSD for client machines, like the ability to access identity servers offline.
The tutorial is mainly targeted at system administrators. Rudimentary knowledge of technologies such as LDAP is advantageous, but not required. A VM image based on Fedora 18 will be available for the attendance to experiment easily.
