4 Steps for Building an Orchestrated Authorization Policy for Zero Trust
There is a great deal of emphasis placed on the Zero Trust approach with respect to access. Looking beyond authentication (the act of verifying that someone is who they say they are), evaluating authorization is just as important as it determines what someone can do with that access. Policies must be written to account for this, and the strongest policies are built on an authorization model that is orchestrated in nature.
An orchestrated and centralized approach to authorization builds dynamic and fine-grained access control (FGAC) policies that meet the demands of modern security strategies including zero trust. Taking a Zero Trust approach to policy building eliminates absolute trust from the equation by continuously validating users at all layers of the application based on a set or combinations of attributes collected from multiple sources (i.e., who, what, where, when, why, how, etc.).
