Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI): Provisioning / De-Provisioning Access and Ensuring Accurate User Identity and Access across All the Forest Using IAM

Sampath Talluri [3]


Abstract: Creating user identities and access rights in organizations is a parliament activity to ensure data security and operational efficacy. ADSI is a set of COM(Component Object Model) interfaces provided by Microsoft for working with directory services, specifically the Windows Active Directory(AD) service. AD is a directory service used by Windows networks to store information about resources and users hierarchically. ADSI allows developers and administrators to programmatically interact and manage objects in the Active Directory, such as users, groups, computers, and organizational units (OU). It provides a consistent way to perform tasks like querying for objects, creating or deleting objects, and modifying object attributes within the directory of different forests or child forests. We must use the ADSI interface to connect to multiple AD forests and Domain Controllers (DC). ADSI is used as a Global catalog to query the Directory services. Despite these advantages, it also identifies challenges, including configuration complexity, trust relationships, and the need for security and maintenance efforts. Organizations must carefully address these challenges to harness the full potential of ADSI integration in modern identity and access management strategies.
