INTRODUCTION

SINGLE SIGN-ON (SSO)


Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to use one set of login credentials, for example, a username and password, to access multiple applications.


PURPOSE


SSO helps clients and their users with the challenge of maintaining the different credentials for different applications separately which streamlines the process of signing on without the need to re-enter the password. With SSO end-users time and efforts get minimized as they don’t need to constantly sign in and out separately into multiple applications.


PROCESS


Setting up SSO must be done by the client's IT department or technical personal. The setup will involve authenticating the Identity Prover (IDP) i.e., the client with the Service Provider (SP) i.e., Crowdcomms event platform.
