Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0 IM-1 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0_IM-1 Microsoft cloud security benchmark IM-1 Identity Management Use centralized identity and authentication system Shared **Security Principle:** Use a centralized identity and authentication system to govern your organization's identities and authentications for cloud and non-cloud resources. **Azure Guidance:** Microsoft Entra ID is Azure's identity and authentication management service. You should standardize on Microsoft Entra ID to govern your organization's identity and authentication in: - Microsoft cloud resources, such as the Azure Storage, Azure Virtual Machines (Linux and Windows), Azure Key Vault, PaaS, and SaaS applications. - Your organization's resources, such as applications on Azure, third-party applications running on your corporate network resources, and third-party SaaS applications. - Your enterprise identities in Active Directory by synchronization to Microsoft Entra ID to ensure a consistent and centrally managed identity strategy. Note: As soon as it is technically feasible, you should migrate on-premises Active Directory based applications to Microsoft Entra ID. This could be a Microsoft Entra Enterprise Directory, Business to Business configuration, or Business to consumer configuration. **Implementation and additional context:** Tenancy in Microsoft Entra ID: How to create and configure a Microsoft Entra instance: Define Microsoft Entra ID tenants: Use external identity providers for an application: n/a link 14
