What is Just in Time Access?

JIT (Just-In-Time) access is a security feature used by IT companies to grant temporary access to their systems for a specific purpose. This method reduces the risk of data breaches by limiting the length of time the system is open to potential attacks. It is commonly used in cloud computing and network management to improve overall security.

Benefits of Just in Time Access to

Axiad

1. Strengthened Least Privilege Access: Just in time access and privilege escalation in Axiad ensures that users only have access to the data they need, only when they need it. This minimises the risk of accidental or unauthorized access to sensitive information, thereby enforcing the principle of least privilege.

2. Reduction of Insider Threats: By only providing access privileges at the required time, insider threats or potential breaches due to misuse or unauthorized use of privileges can be significantly reduced. Axiad's just in time approach ensures that any sudden escalation of privileges can be quickly detected and isolated.

3. Enhanced Operational Efficiency: Using Axiad's just in time permission management can streamline the assignment of user rights, making the process of access control more efficient. This also reduces the time and resources spent on managing unnecessary prolonged access, contributing to better overall operational efficiency.

4. Simplified Compliance Auditing: With the just in time approach, auditing for compliance becomes much easier, as access and privilege escalation logs become more transparent and easier to interpret. It allows auditors to clearly see who had access to what data, when and for how long, facilitating compliance with regulatory standards.

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to

Axiad

1. Emergency situation: In the event of an emergency, such as a breach or major system error, just in time admin access would allow a properly authorized individual immediate access to correct the issue, without the need for long access procedures.

2. Routine Maintenance: For scheduled systems checks or software updates, temporary admin access can be granted to IT personnel to perform the required tasks and then withdrawn as soon as they're finished, minimizing the risks of unauthorized access.

3. Temporary Workers or Consultants: If a company hires a temporary worker or a consultant that requires admin rights, just in time admin access can be used to provide them access for the time they need and then revoke it once their job is done, ensuring the security of the system.

How to Implement Just in Time Access to

Axiad

Entitle Just In Time Access - diagram- How to Implement Just in Time Access to

1. Planning.

  • Assessment
    Begin by identifying who requires access, the resources they need, and the reason. Document existing access rights and consider whether they can be minimized or eliminated. An entitlement discovery tool can help provide better visibility.
  • Policy Creation
    Define clear policies for granting and revoking access. Outline rules about who can request access, under what conditions, and for what duration. Especially for privileged roles, establish time-bound limitations.
  • Source of Truth
    Sync your JIT access system with an Identity Provider such as Okta, Google Workspace, Azure AD, OneLogin. This will serve as the definitive source for identities. Prioritizing individual identities over shared accounts will enhance authorization control and audit accuracy.

2. Execution.

  • Self-serve Access Requests
    Streamline the process by having users request access via the system, as opposed to requesting from people directly. Increase user uptake by incorporating IM platforms like Slack or MS Teams. Make sure requests include the requester's identity, the required service/resource/role, duration, and reason for access.
  • Approval Process
    JIT access offers organizations the chance to assign approvals to individuals who possess greater business knowledge. Resource owners and business unit managers often possess a better understanding than IT helpdesks. Use instant messaging platforms for quick responses, providing approvers with all the necessary information to make an informed decision.
  • Conditional Approval Workflows
    Imbed your predefined policies into workflows that govern access permissions. Use rule-based logic like if-then conditions.
  • Integration
    Connect JITA with other IT and security systems for increased flexibility; consider IT ticketing systems for automated access dependent on ticket status. Collaborate with on-call scheduling tools for automated approvals during emergencies.
  • Automated Provisioning and Deprovisioning
    Develop a comprehensive understanding of Axiad to effectively grant and revoke access automatically and precisely. Automating this process is crucial for JIT access as it reduces reliance on human intervention and enforces the principle of least privilege access (POLP).
  • Access Methods
    APIs are the recommended form of access due to their flexibility and real-time capabilities.

3. Maintenance.

  • Regular Audits
    Occasionally check access logs to ensure JIT access is functioning properly. Investigate any anomalous patterns or behaviours and feed this information into your SIEM for further analysis. Better still, automate this review process for faster evidence collection.
  • User Training
    Educate users, especially those with privileged access, about JIT access and how to request it.
  • Feedback Loop
    Periodically review your JIT access procedures and seek feedback from users and IT staff for continual improvement.

By adhering to this structured approach, you’ll successfully implement a robust Just-in-Time Access system for Axiad.
