AboutAbout Mark Dixon and the Discovering Identity blog.
This blog is an attempt to progressively document and share the lessons I learn about the broad science and magic of Identity and Access Management as I go about my work in Identity Management and Information Security at Oracle Corporation. Sprinkled here and there will be bits of wisdom and trivia that come into my mind.
