MyID Integration Toolkit
MyID is often implemented as part of a wider identity management infrastructure; this may require integration with multiple in-house systems such as human resources, account provisioning, single sign on and physical access control.
Just as important as the integration of multiple technologies is providing a secure and seamless business process. This demands that deployed systems can work together in a service-oriented architecture model to allow a single identity policy to be implemented across multiple systems.
The MyID Toolkit provides the capabilities to take an out of the box implementation of MyID and integrate it to become part of an end-to-end identity management solution.
What does the Toolkit consist of and what can you do with it?
The MyID Toolkit consists of a package of APIs, documentation and sample code designed to extend the capabilities of MyID beyond those that can be achieved by the use of the product GUI alone.
The Toolkit is available for use with MyID Enterprise and MyID PIV Editions. Some capabilities may differ depending on the edition of MyID in use – for example fingerprint or facial biometric enrolment. Check the product documentation supplied with your installation of MyID for further details of available capabilities.
