FICAM Playbooks

The FICAM playbooks offer guidance for teams to design and build functional and secure systems that comply with Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) policies, technologies, and implementation patterns. They are hosted on Github, and provide common patterns to help you implement and execute ICAM at your agency.

More playbooks are in the works, and will be published here as they are developed. The content in these playbooks was created in collaboration with agencies, and we encourage you to continue to contribute! Watch this video to learn how to contribute to the FICAM Playbooks via Github.


The FICAM Roadmap, developed by working groups under the Federal CIO Council, contains processes, procedures, and considerations for planning and managing logical access, physical access, enterprise identity management, and federation within federal agencies. (Note, the enterprise architecture section of the Roadmap has been superceded by the FICAM Architecture Playbook.)
