About Identity and Access Manager

Identity and Access Manager (also referred to as IAM) is a Kaspersky Security Center Web Console component that enables you to use a single sign-on (SSO) between Kaspersky Security Center Web Console and Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks web interface. IAM uses the OAuth 2.0 protocol to ensure authorization of Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks in Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.

In this case, the Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks, which you get access to via Kaspersky Security Center Web Console, is referred to as a resource server, and Kaspersky Security Center Web Console and Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks web interface are referred to as OAuth 2.0 clients. A resource server is a program that works with multiple users and requires authorization. The client uses a token for authorization on the resource server. A token is a unique sequence of bytes. When a token expires, it is automatically reissued. IAM acts a single authorization server for multiple OAuth 2.0 clients.

You can install IAM when installing Kaspersky Security Center Web Console. You can enable it later at any time in the Kaspersky Security Center Web Console settings. If a Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity Server or a Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity web interface is installed on a device that is managed by the same Administration Server, IAM detects this program and a notification is displayed in Kaspersky Security Center Web Console informing you about this. You can register Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks and later use SSO for both Kaspersky Security Center Web Console and Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks web interface.

If you sign out of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console, your session in Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks web interface will end and you will have to log in to Kaspersky Security Center Web Console again.
