Identity and access management (IAM) systems are used to assure authorized access to services in distributed environments. The design decisions of IAM systems, in particular the arrangement of the involved components, have significant impact on performance, access control accuracy, and costs of the overall system. Hence, systematic engineering of IAM systems demands for criteria and metrics to differentiate architectural approaches. Therefore, we propose a system design framework for IAM that can be used to evaluate different design decisions in advance.
