Single Sign On
Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that enables users to securely authenticate with multiple applications and websites by using just one set of credentials.
- Elevates user experience.
- Time Saving.
- Improves speed where it matters the most.
- Helps with regulatory compliance.
- Cuts down IT Helpdesk costs.
SSO works based upon a trust relationship set up between an application, known as the service provider, and an identity provider. This trust relationship is often based upon a certificate that is exchanged between the identity provider and the service provider.
What is an SSO feature?
Single sign-on (SSO) is a session and user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials for example, a name and password to access multiple applications.
Why does SSO integrate?
SSO reduces the number of attack surfaces because users only log in once each day and only use one set of credentials. Reducing login to one set of credentials improves enterprise security.
What are the types of SSO?
There are three players here: The client (you, or your web browser), the resource server (the app you are trying to access), and the authorization server (the SSO provider).
