​​​​​​​​​​​​Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, and deployed applications, and possibly limited control of select networking components (e.g., host firewalls).

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Identifiable Data or Personal Data

The data that alone or in combination with other data may reasonably be expected to identify an individual.

Identity and Access Management

A set of processes and supporting technologies that enable the creation, maintenance, use, and revocation of digital identity. 

Identity Management (IdM)

This is also known as identity and access management (IAM). It addresses access to the 'right IT services' at the 'right times' and for 'the right reasons' by the 'right entities' across variable technology environments and meeting compliance requirements.​

Identity Provider (IdP)

An institute that is able to obtain an identity from a store (e.g. Active Directory), authenticates this identity, and then passes the trusted identity to the servive provider in an agreed-upon way, typically through SAML or OpenID Connect.​

Impact analysis

Impact analysis on (new) proposed RDM policy.

Incidental Findings

A finding discovered in the course of clinical care or research concerning an individual that is beyond the aims of the clinical care or research.

Individual Research Results

A finding discovered in the course of research concerning an individual that relates to the aims of the research.

Individually Identifiable

Private Information or specimens to be individually identifiable as defined at 45 CFR 46.102(f) when they can be linked to specific individuals by the investigator(s) either directly or indirectly through coding systems.
