Privileged Account Management Credential Cycling

Credential cycling enables applications that require credentials, such as username and password, to obtain that information directly from a PAM vendor, such as a CyberArk or Beyond Trust vault. Credential cycling enables credentials to be authenticated directly from the PAM source at runtime.

An administrator defines which applications will use credential cycling, which PAM solution provides those credentials, and how each of the applications will contact the PAM repository to retrieve the credentials. This is done using a configuration file that is imported into IdentityIQ as an object.
