N11.com IAM Implementation with SailPoint IdentityIQ

This project involved implementing identity and access management processes on SailPoint IdentityIQ for N11.com, one of the leading eCommerce companies.

As an identity and access management (IAM) architect, I oversaw the architectural design and technical processes. Within the project's scope, the procedures, such as access requests, joiner, leaver, department changes, role matrix, access review, and segregation of duties, were analyzed and designed for personal and non-personal accounts, including service and admin accounts.

I integrated applications such as SAP SuccessFactors, SAP ECC, Active Directory, exchange, CyberArk PAM, Jira, and Slack using SailPoint-ready connectors. In addition, innovative integration infrastructures were created using generic connectors. Thousands of Unix servers were included in IAM processes from a single point by integrating AWX with the generic web service connector. Finally, I provided user, role, and privilege management in Oracle Database using the Generic JDBC connection from a single integration point.

Turkish Naval Forces IAM Implementation with Oracle Identity Manager

The aim of this project is to implement identity and access management processes on Oracle Identity Manager. As an IAM architect, I oversaw the architectural design and technical processes. We designed and implemented the identity management processes by integrating various IT resources. Also, we automated provisioning of users' personal or administrator accounts in IT resources, authorization requests, password management, authorization, and authorization review processes. Finally, we implemented process flows, including complex approvals, notifications, and manual actions.

GDPR Adaptation of Databases

As a security architect, I carried out projects that enabled the GDPR adaptation of corporations in the finance, public, manufacturing, and retail sectors. We wanted to activate the databases' local solutions or security options, integrate them with the application layer, and develop the necessary customizations for orchestration, administration, monitoring, and reporting.

I implemented the Oracle Enterprise User Security (EUS) solution for identity and access management (IAM) and multi-factor authentication (MFA). With this infrastructure, the accounts and roles in all databases were centrally managed on the directory server and integrated with IAM and MFA processes.

Also, we implemented the following solutions to complete this project:

• Transparent data encryption (TDE) solutions for Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or MySQL databases for encryption at rest.
• Oracle Redaction, Microsoft SQL Server, or MySQL data definition language for dynamic masking or redaction requirements.
• Oracle Database Vault and Microsoft SQL Server Segregation of Duties (SoD) for segregation of duty requirements.
• Oracle Audit Vault and IBM Guardium for auditing requirements.
• Oracle Label Security (OLS) for data anonymization.

DevSecOps Implementation

As a security architect, I designed and implemented DevSecOps pipelines on AWS, Azure, and on-premise platforms. Also, I integrated various software composition analysis (SCA), static application security testing (SAST), and dynamic application security testing (DAST) tools in pipelines like OWASP dependency-check, SonarQube, and OWASP ZAP.

Akbank DC Migration Project

As a middle-tier architect, I made conceptual and physical designs for a large bank's DC migration of Middleware products.
I led the discovery, planning, execution, and optimization stages of WebLogic, Apache Tomcat, JBoss EAP, SOA/BPM, Directory Server, HTTP server, and Azure Service Bus products during migration.
