Whether deploying Windows in a Linux or UNIX environment, or vice versa, identity management can be a challenge. In order to explore this topic, Hank spent some time talking with Dustin Puryear author, consultant, featured speaker at TechX World and owner of Puryear Information Technology, LLC. Dustin specializes in solving integration challenges related to mixed environments and has penned a few books on the topic. Two of his books: Best Practices for Managing Linux and UNIX Servers and "Spam Fighting and Email Security for the 21st Century" are available as free e-books on his site.
In this podcast (Part 1 of 2) Hank and Dustin explore issues related to implementing Identity Management solutions and focus primarily on the importance of policies. While the act of deployment is by default important, without proper policies even the best solution can fall short. In the next podcast the conversation will focus on implementation strategies.
