Glossary Term

Identity Score

In Plurilock™ products, an Identity Score is a statistical value that expresses the degree to which current computing activity is consistent with the data stored in the current user's profile.

Activity that is highly consistent with the profile confirms that the intended user is currently at work, while activity that is not consistent with the profile fails to confirm that the intended user is currently at work.

The threshold at which a low identity score results in security action, and the security action to be taken when such an identity failure occurs, are configurable by system administrators and may include rejecting an authentication attempt, logging a current computing session out, or prompting for additional forms of authentication.
