What is Just in Time Access?

Just-in-time access is a security measure that provides access to a system or resource for a limited period of time based on specific requirements. Instead of providing constant access, permissions are granted dynamically, as and when required. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access and potential data breaches, as access rights are strictly controlled and reduced to the minimum necessary.

Benefits of Just in Time Access to


1. Reduced Insider Threats and Human Errors: By using just-in-time access and privilege escalation, Aptible can minimize insider threats as permission levels are temporary, and reduced to what is absolutely necessary for the task at hand. This also lowers the risk of human errors as staff don't have access to resources beyond their requirements.

2. Improved Operational Efficiency: This approach maximizes efficiency by reducing unnecessary overhead involved in managing elevated permission levels. Employees are given enough access for their task, eliminating the delay caused by excess privilege reviews and thus speeding up the overall operational procedure in Aptible.

3. Easier Auditing for Compliance: Having a just-in-time system automatically logs usage, access, and escalation activities. These logs provide crucial insight into who accessed what, making regulatory compliance for HIPAA, GDPR, or SOC 2 within Aptible easier and more transparent.

4. Least Privilege Admin Access: Just-in-time access abides by the principle of least privilege, which means giving the minimum permissions necessary for a task. Within Aptible, this helps to limit the potential damage from an accidental misconfiguration or deliberate misuse, thereby improving security posture.

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to


1. Managing Sensitive Data: In healthcare or financial industries, managing sensitive data like PHI or PII stored in AWS S3 can use just-in-time access to Aptible. This ensures that only authenticated users have on-time access to these resources, ensuring data security and compliance with regulations like HIPAA or GDPR.

2. Application Development & Testing: For software development companies that utilize AWS S3 for storing application data, JIT access to Aptible can provide developers and testers with timely access to the necessary resources. This increases productivity and reduces the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.

3. Incident Response: During cyber security incident response procedures, just-in-time access to Aptible can ensure fast and secure access to affected AWS S3 buckets for analysis or damage control. This shortens the response time and mitigates the potential impact of security incidents.

How to Implement Just in Time Access to

Just in Time (JIT) access control is a security model that restricts user access to applications, databases, and services until it's really necessary. When implemented properly, this model reduces the risk of data breaches or unauthorized access. In this guide, we'll discuss how to implement JIT access control in Aptible, a deployment platform for secure, regulatory-compliant apps and databases.

1. Planning

  • Start by assessing your needs
    Determine which users require access to Aptible, the specific resources they need, and their reason for access. Take note of existing access rights and consider areas for reduction or elimination.
  • Develop clear, unambiguous policies
    Specify the eligibility requirements, conditions, and duration of access requests. Pay close attention to privileged user roles and ensure the access granted is time-restricted.
  • Use an Identity Provider (IdP)
    Such as Okta, Google Workspace, Azure AD, or OneLogin. Link this IdP with Aptible to ensure individual identity verification, accurate auditing, and enhanced control over authorization.

2. Execution

  • Facilitate self-service access requests
    Users should be able to request access through the system directly, ideally via integrated IM platforms like Slack or MS Teams. Each request should specify the necessary details for the access request.

  • Delegate the authority to approve requests.
    Tto individuals with a relevant business context, such as resource owners and business managers. Leverage messaging platforms to expedite informed decisions.

  • Create conditional approval workflows
    rive access permissions based on specific conditions. This way, you ensure that your organization's policies are consistently implemented across all access requests.

  • Incorporate JIT with IT and other security systems to enhance flexibility
    This includes syncing with ticketing systems for automated access requests and scheduling tools for emergency approvals.
  • Familiarize yourself with Aptible's technical details to enable automated provisioning and deprovisioning of access
    This reduces the need for manual processes and enhances your control over access management.

3. Maintenance

  • Regular Audits
    Carry out routine audits on access logs to evaluate the effectiveness of the JIT access system. Auditing helps to detect and rectify security issues promptly.
  • User Training
    Users, particularly those with privileged access, must be trained on the principles of least-privilege, JIT Access, and the process of requesting access. This helps them understand their roles and responsibilities in maintaining access control.
  • Feedback Loop
    Continually assess your JIT access procedures and gather feedback from your users and IT staff. Incorporate improvements in your access strategy and iterate as needed.

Following these steps carefully will help you to create a robust, secure and efficient JIT access system for your Aptible environment, minimizing the potential security risks while maintaining user productivity.
