Best Practices: Enforcing Least Privilege Access for Linux Servers With Okta
Any successful IAM initiative needs to incorporate Least Privilege Access. This means only granting minimum rights to perform specific functions. Proper implementation ensures adherence to role-based access controls across critical infrastructure resources. Any written IAM policies that can’t be enforced become ineffective.
Unlike traditional privileged access solutions, Advanced Server Access delivers an Identity-First approach to secure server access. Local accounts, entitlements, and activity are directly linked to Okta users, where least privilege is enforced via role-based access controls.
This whitepaper provides a number of best practices to seamlessly extend Okta to your Linux servers in an elegant manner designed for scale and automation. Download the whitepaper to learn more.
