Active Directory, GRC, and Identity Management

I had originally posted this in the Security forum, but was directed here:

A client I am working at would like to explore using Active Directory groups to assign SAP roles to users, both portal roles and ABAP roles. They are currently using Microsoft AD. However they have a requirement to use GRC Access Controls (v5.2) to assist with role maintenace and assignment for SOX compliance. I have been told that the Identity Management product can assist with integrating GRC and AD that will still allow for SOD checking/SOX compliance while role assignments can take place in AD.

Does anybody have experience with using Identity Management either with or without GRC? Does in work with Microsoft AD or is it is own AD product? What was your experience with it?

Are there any other products that can be recommended that will allow for integration between GRC Access Controls and Microsoft AD?

    I'm sure that at the moment Identity Management and GRC are not linked together. I know there are plans for the future to do this, but I doubt it will be unitl at least mid next year.

    Identity Managment itself can work with AD and does do reports too, but I think these are different to the reports in GRC.

      Hi Steve,

      We integrated SiteMinder(eTrust) from CA with the Portal and it is pretty good and stable.

      The one thing i like with SiteMinder is they are pretty stable and once it is configured the maintenance is very less and it is very stable also.

      Also, they provide integrations with major webservers and application servers.

      Cheers, Nag
