CSU's Identity Management (IDM) architecture and processes relate to the management of information pertaining to people and their access to computerised systems.
The CSU IDM architecture is a distributed, rather than centralised, model.
In a centralised model, identity data is captured in a central Identity Management Application that reconciles the identity against all existing identity records, establishes an identity record and then distributes the details to other information systems.
This differs from a distributed approach where the identity data is collected in contributing applications (Identity Gateways) and then transferred to a central identity repository. This central IDM application performs the functions listed above.
