Director of digital at the University of Grenoble Alpes (58,000 students) – and also a member of the board of directors of the CSIES (IT services committee for higher education and research) -, Nina Reignier Tayar is notably responsible for a Multi-establishment identity and access management repository. In terms of equipment, the UGA has 6,000 workstations, manages 200 applications and 100,000 IT accounts. “We have observed a multiplication of access accounts, a global complexity and a security issue to know who accesses the IS, for what reasons and at what period”, explains Nina Reignier Tayar.
To meet these different objectives and the need for uniqueness of accounts, the University set out on an IAM solution based on internal, open source development to have “an efficient solution, control and update”, specifies Nina Reignier Tayar. The multi-site and authorization management capacities of this tool, called Biper (interuniversity database of people and their role), allows people to be enrolled immediately. “We have cabled our entire IS with around fifty data sources to supply Biper with automated and manual flows allowing named and identified correspondents to make manual entries for temporary access”. More than an IS access repository, Biper is also used to facilitate the urbanization of IS linked to major changes in applications. “We realized that we can use our IAM as a data hub to urbanize our information system,” confirms Nina Reignier Tayar.
