The FUDO administrator defines which privileged accounts can access resources, under what conditions, for how long, and how. Privileged account information is stored in secure and private password vaults.
Privileged accounts request access to the resources defined for them by logging in via FUDO to gain access to resources. This login process is made even more secure with multi-factor authentication systems. After this request, if desired, the FUDO manager’s approval mechanism can be run if it is policy. After accessing the resources based on the written rule, the passwords used are automatically changed frequently.
The PAM administrator can monitor user activities through the PAM portal and even manage live sessions in real time as needed. Modern PAMs also use machine learning to identify anomalies and risk scoring to alert the PAM Manager to actual risky operations.
