Computer users have a pair of userlD and password for almost every Business application. The more a company is engaged in business applications, the more an end-user and issuing company suffer in maintaining and securing userlDs and passwords. Application vendors have made some contributions but those are not fundamental. This dissertation tackled this problem by introducing an infrastructure model: the IAAIBB. The model synthesizes the power of Directory Service (DS), Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Role Based Access Control (RBAC), providing a fundamental solution to above stated problem.
