LEUVEN, Belgium, October 9, 2017 — miaa Guard announces that Janrain licences, resells and supports the cloud-based add-ons for customer access management under a global OEM agreement. Building on a strong partnership since 2014, Janrain has extended its Janrain Identity Cloudtm with miaa Guard’s access management add-ons.

Products in the Janrain/miaa Guard OEM portfolio include:

  • PrivateGroups: A rich API to implement delegated administration with rule-based sharing of access to ‘things info’ and ‘user info.
  • PolicyGate: A rich API to tokenise access control with rule-based issuance of JWT access tokens and password policy enforcement.
  • ProfileConnect: A rich API to manage OIDC user info including plurals, to manage user authorisations (consents) with rule-based access to PII and to manage provisional accounst for guest check-out, lazy migration and enrolment workflows.
  • ProfileSync: A reverse-API to propagate PII in a controlled and resilient way with rule-based filtering.

This new OEM offering helps Janrain provide its customers with solutions for family management, delegated administration and IoT access management.

The combination of Janrain Identity Cloud and the OEM of miaa Guard’s access management add-ons has proven to be very powerful. The combination enables existing and future Janrain customers to respond to their growing demands for controlled access in mobile, B2C, B2B and IoT environments.

Technical note: The OEM add-ons extend Janrain Identity Cloud with self-service of access rights and the full spectrum of Open ID Connect 1.0 and OAuth 2.0 capabilities for access control within the XACML 3.0 reference architecture and adopting all OAuth 2.0 grant types. The default set of access rules can be extended using Janrain Advanced Policy Managertm. The delegated administration of users and access rights using self-declared claims that are verified against authoritative sources, create a super-scalable access management model.
