Password Management Overview

There are three different areas in which password is managed in IDHub. They are as follows:

  • IDHub product
  • Connector / Target system
  • Sath Account

In IDHub, password management is done via KeyCloak. KeyCloak is an independent Identity management tool which is leveraged by IDHub to store and retrieve passwords, SSO with target systems or setting up of MFA of identities as well

For the connector / target system, we use Vault to manage the secrets for the connector configuration and secrets. Besides this, a connector manager UI is also given so that the administrator can manage the secrets from there as well.

For purchasing IDHub cloud (or other implementation or support services), you first need to create a sath account. For creating and managing a sath account, we use Auth0 for the authentication server. Therefore all the sath account credentials are stored and managed via Auth0
