Context-Specific Modeling of IdM Workflows in a Federated Application Domain

Johannes Schick, Inge Koch, Wolfram-Manfred Lippe

Abstract— The context-specific approach allows project structures to be depicted across particular organizational boundaries. In this paper, we apply context-specific methods to model approval processes for identity management systems (IdM) in a federated application domain. This view reduces complexity and a model was created and implemented in our IdM. The modeling language has process-oriented elements and can be used for software-based implementation in the IdM. Communicational interactions between organizational units and technical systems were modeled for our application domain. The graph-based view of the modeling language can be used to make network analyses of the specified issue. These analyses are evaluated in this paper.

Index Terms— Modeling, Identity management systems, System analysis and design.
