Identity Management Middleware
The IMM Client comes in a version supporting the Joint Gatekeeper Service (JGS) as well as a version supporting Interoperability Layer Services (IoLS). The IMM Client can be used as a real-time identity validation system for installation entry, or it can be used as a front-end registration process for the Symmetry Security Management System.
The US Department of Defense (DOD) utilizes a massive database called the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). This database includes the identity information for all Defense Identity document cardholders including Common Access Card (CAC), Dependent Teslin Card, Retiree Teslin Card, etc. The DEERS database is only directly accessible through the Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) workstations; however, DOD has made web services available to allow authorized and vetted providers to access specific information from DEERS. The Interface Web Services (IWS) allows limited access to information stored in DEERS.
