The main feature of Red Hat Identity Management (IdM) is the management of users, groups, hosts, access control rules, and certificates. However, before you can perform administration tasks in IdM, you must log in to the service. You can use Kerberos and one time passwords as authentication methods in IdM when you log in by using the command line or the IdM Web UI.
You can manage certificates in IdM by using the integrated or an external Certificate Authority (CA). You can request, renew, and replace certificates using many tools, for example, Ansible Playbooks. To replace the web server and LDAP server certificates of IdM servers, you must perform manual actions.
