BackEnd

TIB is quite modular and different back-ends can be generated quite easily. By default, TIB will store profile configurations in memory, which does not require any new configuration.

For Identity Handlers that provide token-based access, it is possible to enforce a “One token per provider, per user” policy, which keeps a cache of tokens assigned to identities in Redis, this is so that the broker can be scaled and share the cache across instances.

Since profiles are unlikely to change often, profiles are kept in-memory, but can be added, removed and modified using an API for automated setups if required.
