The CIAM includes the following core components:

A database that includes the identities and access rights of users and consumers
CIAM tools to provision, monitor, change and remove access privileges
A framework for auditing login and access history
The list of access rights must be up-to-date all the time with the entry of new users or the change of roles of current users.

The responsibilities of identity and access management typically come under IT or departments that handle data processing and cybersecurity.

Types of Identity Verification Methods

Identity verification is the necessary implementation for secure and genuine access to resources of web and mobile applications. It helps to authorize the user and provide KYC process access control for applications based on the user’s credentials.

Here are some ways through which identities of consumers can be verified:

Email Verification: Email is still considered the primary means of authentication  because other mechanisms are not as optimized or approach everyone. So it is safe to say that most of your application users use their Gmail accounts for creating their new accounts. The credentials used in setting up the email verification can be used to sign in to an account.
Biometric Verification: Biometrics are physical characteristics and traits of an individual that are unique to them. These characteristics can be used for authentication purposes. Most common biometric authentication characteristics include fingerprints, iris, face, and voice.
Phone Verification: With phone verification, customers use their telephone numbers to identify themselves. This process occurs in three simple steps.

The customer fills out the registration form with their phone number, later acting as the username.
LoginRadius sends a temporary one-time passcode (OTP) registration via an SMS message or automated call.
The customer verifies their phone number by entering the OTP on the website or mobile app.
Social Verification: Social login/verification enables users to use existing login credentials from a social networking platform, including Facebook, Google, Twitter, and more, allowing simplified logins and registrations. LoginRadius simplifies social authentication and improves the overall user experience.
