It is a very known fact that technological progress is always accompanied by related challenges—the aviation industry is not an exception with the high-end technologies it is implementing.
Aviation is confronted with a range of issues including safety, security, and occupational risks. In specific, security technology is deployed to reduce, monitor, and identify the events which can lead to serious issues.
The aviation facilities and their information systems are managed by numerous third-party entities. Hence it demands a high level of cooperation and coordination to make sure the access to critical systems is provided only to the authorized persons, only when needed. The division of administrative rights makes the identity and access management in the airport environment cost-heavy and troubled with replication and prone to errors. Maintaining access authorizations updated with the recruitment of new employees, employee exits, or when they move to other roles/tasks pose a big challenge. There is a need for an identity and access management solution that enables the proper management of authorizations.
On the cybersecurity front lies a new set of challenges. And therefore, it is becoming more challenging to protect the passengers, trading partners, and flight crews.
