What is Just in Time Access?

Just in Time Access provides users with temporary, elevated access to resources and systems for a limited period. Once the task is over these elevated access rights are automatically revoked.

This approach restricts access to special resources and privileges only when necessary, enhancing security. Unlike continuous "always-on" access, just-in-time access offers specific, granular privileges over some time only. It usually involves asking for and getting approval before getting this temporary access.

JIT Access reduces the exposure time and risk associated with permanent access rights and aligns with the principles of zero trust standing privileges. This is often implemented as part of Identity Access Management (IAM) and Privileged Access Management (PAM) strategies, ensuring that privileged access is strictly controlled and limited to authorized individuals only when necessary.

Types of Just-in-Time Access

Justification-based access control

Users must justify their need for privileged access, and once approved, they can connect to specific resources for a limited time.

  • Credentials are managed centrally.
  • Rotated through Password Rotation to reduce privilege abuse risks

Privilege Elevation & Delegation Management (PEDM)

Temporary Elevation

It involves granting enhanced permissions to a process on an as-needed basis.
Privileged access is provided to users under two scenarios:

  • If they have a legitimate requirement for it.
  • Solely for a limited time frame.

After this time frame ends, the elevated privileges are automatically withdrawn.

  • Minimizes any security vulnerabilities.

Ephemeral Accounts

This type is known as temporary accounts or zero-standing privilege accounts. These accounts are created based on specific needs, sometimes called "one-time" accounts.

  • In Just in Time Access, Ephemeral Accounts are created for temporary usage.
  • Discontinued or deleted once their aim is fulfilled or the task is completed.
  • Ensures that Privileged Access is granted only for the necessary duration.

Benefits of Just-in-Time Privileged (JIT) Access

Reduced Attack Surface

Just-in-time access limits how long privileged accounts can be used, reducing the chance of security threats. It blocks unauthorized access and lessens breach effects, improving your organization's defenses by reducing risks from always-available privileges.

Enhanced Security Posture

Just-in-Time (JIT) Access tightens security by limiting access to temporary privileges only when needed, reducing unauthorized entry and breaches. It secures external contractor/vendor access with temporary permissions, enhancing security and reducing attack opportunities.

Streamlined Access & Admin Efficiency

Automating request approvals streamlines access workflows, saving time for administrators and users, (privileged accounts) and ensuring prompt access without compromising productivity.
