Abstract: Data in cloud are protected, sensitive, confidential and are only accessible to actual individuals like certain identity. The resources are accessible through modification of the access control policies based on the user request. During the implementation of this online, the challenges like providing security to the identity and getting access to the resources through the refactoring of access control policies are to be dealt with. Here we introduced a framework for getting over these challenges. Federated identity management along with single sign-on could be utilised for providing security of identity to the user. Therefore the goal is the enhancement of the security of identity along with the availability of resources in multitier cloud and to provide inter-link cloud federation. The workflow offers an insight concerned with the identity and access management in the form of a service to e-healthcare cloud and thereafter a case scenario is studied.

Keywords: IAM; identity and access management; attribute based access control.
