What is Just in Time Access?

JIT Access, also known as Just-In-Time Access, is a cybersecurity strategy where a user's access rights are provided only when needed and for a specific duration. It aims to minimize the risk of unauthorized access and reduce the attack surface by eliminating standing privileges. This method is commonly used for privileged access management, where high-level administrative permissions are granted and revoked as needed.

Benefits of Just in Time Access to

BlueJeans

1. **Enhanced Least Privilege Access**: Just in time access allows for a more effective implementation of the principle of least privilege in BlueJeans. It ensures that individuals only have temporary access to sensitive information or system controls when absolutely necessary, reducing the potential risk of data exposure or compromise.

2. **Mitigated Insider Threats and Human Errors**: Using just in time access and privilege escalation mechanisms reduce the likelihood of accidental or deliberate misuse of sensitive system controls in BlueJeans. These strategies ensure that potentially destructive actions can only be performed during specific authorized periods, significantly reducing the opportunities for insider threats or human errors.

3. **Streamlined Operational Efficiency**: Implementing just in time access on BlueJeans reduces the unnecessary administrative burden of managing long-term permissions. By granting temporary access only when necessary, system administrators can focus on other critical tasks, thereby improving operational efficiency.

4. **Improved Audit and Compliance Readiness**: The use of just in time privilege escalation maintains a detailed access log within BlueJeans, making it easier to monitor and review permissions for auditing purposes. It allows for straightforward tracking of who had access to what data and exactly when, greatly simplifying processes for regulatory compliance.

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to

BlueJeans

1. Emergency Troubleshooting: In situations where immediate attention is required such as technical glitches, freezes, or unexpected shutdowns during a conference call, just in time admin access can be leveraged to swiftly resolve these issues without impacting the ongoing meeting.

2. Temporary Event Management: If a company chooses to run a large scale virtual event or town hall via BlueJeans, just in time admin access can be provided to event organizers or technicians, enabling them to have control over the settings and ensuring smooth event execution.

3. User Training: Just in time admin access to BlueJeans can be useful in training scenarios. It can be given to a trainer or IT personnel to demonstrate different features, settings or troubleshoot common problems users may encounter in real-time.

How to Implement Just in Time Access to

BlueJeans

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

1. Planning.

  • Assessment - Begin by pinpointing which individuals need BlueJeans access, the specific resources they'll require, and why. Catalogue current access privileges to see if any can be curtailed or removed. An entitlement discovery tool can be helpful for gaining greater visibility.
  • Policy creation
    Formulate clear-cut policies for both the granting and rescinding of access. Categorize who can request access, under what conditions, and for what length of time. Particularly for high-ranking roles, set these permissions within a time frame.
  • Source of truth
    Align your JIT access model with an Identity Provider (e.g., Okta, Google Workspace, Azure AD, OneLogin). This acts as your master guide for identities. Applying individual identities over shared accounts encourages better authorization control and auditing precision.

2. Execution.

  • Self-serve access requests
    Make the process smoother by letting users request access directly through the system instead of via other individuals. Enhancing compatibility with IM platforms like Slack or MS Teams ensures faster adoption rates. Make certain requests detail the identity of the requester, necessary service/resource/role, duration, and reason.
  • Approval process
    JIT access allows companies to entrust approvals to people armed with business insight. Resource owners and business unit managers frequently have better context than IT helpdesks. Utilize messaging platforms for quick responses, with approvers being provided all the information necessary to make an informed decision.
  • Conditional approval workflows
    Embed your preestablished policies into workflows, forming the backbone of access permissions. Getting it right involves including if-then conditions, such as, IF identity group “X” requests access to “Y”, get approval from “Z” and notify “M”.
  • Integrations
    Think about pairing JIT Access with other IT and security systems to get more flexibility; Link with IT ticketing systems for automated access predicated on ticket status. Connect with data classification systems to adjust policies as per data sensitivity. Ideally, tagging resources and bundling them together simplifies this process. Team up with on-call schedule software for auto-approvals during times of crisis. Use training systems to grant access based on training completion.
  • Automated provisioning and deprovisioning
    To efficiently grant and revoke access automatically within BlueJeans, thorough understanding of the service is mandatory. This reduces reliance on humans, permits automatic deprovisioning of access, and is fundamental to JIT Access and the principle of least privilege access (POLP).
  • Access methods
    For BlueJeans JIT Access, APIs bring flexibility and immediacy, making them a favorable choice. However, it may be necessary to use a combination of methods; SAML for authentication, SCIM for user provisioning, and APIs for precision access control decisions.

3. Maintenance.

  • Regular audits  
    Schedule routine checks on access logs to ensure JIT access is functioning effectively. Watch for out-of-the-norm patterns or behaviors by either direct assessment or by inputting the logs into your SIEM.
  • User training
    Training users on the why and how of least privilege and JIT Access helps prevent unwanted access. They should also be taught how to request access when necessary.
  • Feedback loop
    Continuous reviews of your JIT access procedures is important. Solicit feedback from users and IT staff for necessary improvements.

This structured approach should ensure effective implementation of a robust Just-in-Time Access system for BlueJeans.
