Curity Identity Server Concepts Overview
The design goals of the Curity Identity Server are focused on the following key principles, which are used to provide many security features for real-world systems:
- Separation of Concerns
- Extensibility in Key Areas
These Concepts articles will summarize the most important behavior and provide a
shopping list of capabilities that your Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution should provide.
The following diagram provides an overview of the components and areas. There are three main services, each of which use the core subsystems:
The following articles overview how the functional and non-functional areas of the system are designed:
|Authentication||Key authentication features companies are likely to need|
|Tokens||Features needed to protect data in APIs to high standards|
|Curity Data||An overview of the types of data managed by the Curity Identity Server|
|Deployment||Extensible deployment options and behaviors|
|High Availability||Full operational features for ensuring high availability|
At Curity, we think very carefully about the behavior our customers require for their systems to succeed. Our focus on standards and separation provides an excellent toolbox for building security solutions. We also follow modern deployment and availability patterns to deliver a system that will run reliably over time.
