First generation ICAM systems are long overdue for improvements because identity federation and managing access based upon ICAM guidelines during emergencies is still non-existent. Existing ICAM solutions are closed, place onerous restrictions on the trust mechanism, do not account for mobile environments and are static in nature. The innovation proposed will, for the first time, provide the ability for crisis and emergency managers to standup adhoc networks, dynamically federate participants and onboard privately-owned systems of interest on-the-fly while ensuring that access control continues to be managed by the system owners. Along with open source components and specifications vetted by the first responder community, this effort expands existing ICAM implementations to provide a more open, dynamic and inclusive crisis management capability for first responders to effortlessly engage systems of interest while minimizing their risks to participate. A reference implementation of this adhoc network will be developed to demonstrate the use of existing credentials such as drivers license, PIV cards, etc. for proofing identities while embracing the bring your own device (BYOD) paradigm. Researching and analyzing existing identity provider and multi-level trust implementations such as ADFS, IBM etc. will help to catalog what exists and what specifications are already available to build upon for successful commercialization. According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Identity & Access Management market is estimated for $7.94 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $20.87 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 14.8% during the forecast period 2016 to 2022, making this effort worthwhile.
