VMware Identity Manager Administration provides information and instructions about using and maintaining the VMware Identity Manager services. With VMware Identity Manager™ you can set up and manage authentication methods and access policies, customize a catalog of resources for your organization's applications and provide secure, multi-device, managed user access to those resources. Such resources include Web applications, Windows applications captured as ThinApp packages, Citrix-based applications, and View desktop and application pools. VMware Identity Manager provides users with a unified experience and offers your IT department unified security and management for all services and applications across multiple devices.

This information is intended for anyone who wants to configure and administer VMware Identity Manager. This information is written for experienced Windows or Linux system administrators who are familiar with virtual machine technology, identity management, Kerberos, and directory services. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinApp®, View, Citrix application virtualization, and authentication methods, such as RSA SecurID, is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
