Location attestations

You can use attestation to test the balance between security and compliance within your company. Managers or others responsible for compliance can use One Identity Manager attestation functionality to certify correctness of permissions, requests, or exception approvals either scheduled or on demand. Recertification is the term generally used to describe regular certification of permissions. One Identity Manager uses the same workflows for recertification and attestation.

There are attestation policies defined in One Identity Manager for carrying out attestations. Attestation policies specify which objects are attested when, how often, and by whom.Once an attestation is performed, One Identity Manager creates attestation cases that contain all the necessary information about the attestation objects and the attestor responsible. The attestor checks the attestation objects. They verify the correctness of the data and initiate any changes that need to be made if the data conflicts with internal rules.

Attestation cases record the entire attestation sequence. Each attestation step in an attestation case can be audit-proof reconstructed. Attestations are run regularly using scheduled tasks. You can also trigger single attestations manually.

Attestation is complete when the attestation case has been granted or denied approval. You specify how to deal with granted or denied attestations on a company basis.
