What is Just in Time Access?

JIT access, or Just-In-Time access, is an identity and access management strategy that provides temporary or time-bound access to resources in an "as-needed" basis. This method minimises privileges to reduce the attack surface by limiting the time window in which resources can be accessed. It is commonly used in cloud computing and DevOps environments to enhance security.

Benefits of Just in Time Access to


1. Enhanced Least Privilege Access: Using just in time access and privilege escalation in Axero gives users the exact level of access they require, only when they need it. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access, thereby maintaining data security and enhancing the principles of least privilege policy.

2. Decreased Insider Threats: With just in time privilege escalation, the potential for insider threats is significantly reduced. This is because users are only given elevated permissions for a specific task or timeframe, ensuring they don't have unnecessary access to sensitive information that could be exploited.

3. Improved Operational Efficiency: Just in time access means permissions are automatically granted and revoked as needed, eliminating delays associated with manual access provisioning. This boosts operational efficiency by freeing up IT resources and promoting speedy execution of tasks within Axero.

4. Streamlined Compliance Auditing: Having an automated system for controlling access rights in Axero makes it easier to demonstrate compliance with various regulatory standards. With just in time access, every permission granted is logged and can be easily reviewed, making internal and external auditing more straightforward and hassle-free.

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to


1. Incident Response: In the event of a security breach or suspicious activity, just in time admin access to Axero can enable swift action by temporary security personnel to rectify the situation and secure the network.

2. Routine Maintenance: Admins may need temporary access to Axero for regular updates, patches or tuning configurations, helping to reduce vulnerability and maintain optimal performance without providing full time access.

3. Troubleshooting/System Outages: If service disruptions or technical issues occur in the Axero platform, just in time admin access can expedite the process of problem-solving, as technicians can directly make necessary adjustments to restore service as quickly as possible.

How to Implement Just in Time Access to

1. Planning.

  • Assessment
    Begin by distinguishing who needs access to Axero, the resources they require, and the reason behind it. Record existing access rights to evaluate if they can be reduced or abolished. Consider using a privilege discovery tool for enhanced visibility.
  • Policy creation
    Develop detailed policies for both granting and revoking access to Axero. Include clear guidelines about who can request access, under what conditions, and for how long, especially for high-ranking roles, set time-sensitive parameters.
  • Source of truth
    Synchronize your JIT access system with an Identity Provider (e.g., Okta, Google Workspace, Azure AD, OneLogin). This will act as the authoritative source for identities. Individualising identities over shared accounts will allow for improved authorization control and audit accuracy.

2. Execution.

  • Self-serve access requests
    Streamline the process by allowing users to submit access requests through the system, not through individuals. Improve adoption rates by integrating with IM platforms like Slack or MS Teams. Ensure requests detail the requester, the required service/resource/role, duration, and reason.
  • Approval process
    JIT access offers an opportunity for organizations to delegate approvals to those with business context. Resource owners and business managers often have a better understanding of the needs than IT helpdesks. Use messaging platforms for quick responses, giving approvers all required information for an informed decision.
  • Conditional approval workflows
    Embed your established policies into workflows that decide access permissions.
  • Integrations
    Consider combining JITA with other IT and security systems for increased flexibility; incorporate with IT ticketing systems for automated access based on ticket status. Link with data classification systems to adjust policies based on data sensitivity.
  • Automated provisioning and deprovisioning
    Understand Axero thoroughly to effectively grant and revoke fine-grained access automatically within the service. This is critical for JIT Access as it reduces the reliance on waiting for people to become available. This system allows for automated deprovisioning which is fundamental to JIT access and the principle of least privilege access (POLP).
  • Access methods
    For Axero JIT Access, APIs are often used due to their flexibility and real-time capabilities. However, a mixture might be needed. For instance, using SAML for authentication, SCIM for user provisioning, and APIs for exact access control decisions.

3. Maintenance.

  • Regular audits
    Regularly review access logs to justify that JIT access is functioning as planned. Look for any abnormal patterns or behaviours either directly or by feeding the logs into your SIEM.
  • User training
    Educate users, particularly privileged users, about the concept of least privilege, JIT Access, and how it operates. Ensure users comprehend how to request access when necessary.
  • Feedback loop
    Regularly review your JIT access procedures. Collect feedback from users and IT staff to identify areas that need improvement.

By applying this structured approach, you'll streamline implementation of a robust Just-in-Time Access system for Axero.
