Single sign-on (SSO) is a concept that allows your users to log in once and gain access to multiple applications or services without needing to enter their credentials again. With SSO, a user can authenticate once and then access any number of different applications or services without having to provide their username and password again.
By implementing the single sign-on option in IRIX, you can enhance the accessibility of your platform for users while ensuring a more secure login process. This feature introduces an additional layer of security by reducing the instances of username and password reuse, thereby mitigating the potential risks associated with breaches.
Enhanced user experience: SSO simplifies the login process for users. They don't have to remember multiple usernames and passwords, which can be frustrating and time-consuming. With SSO, users can log in once and access various applications effortlessly, improving their overall experience.
Improved productivity: By reducing the number of login prompts and the need to remember multiple credentials, SSO can save time and increase productivity. Users can quickly switch between applications without the hassle of repeated logins, leading to improved efficiency in performing tasks.
Enhanced security: While it may seem counterintuitive, SSO can actually enhance security of your IRIX system. With SSO, users are more likely to choose stronger passwords since they only need to remember one set of credentials. Additionally, you can enforce robust authentication measures for the single sign-on process, such as two-factor authentication (2FA), further bolstering security of IRIX.
Currently we have support for the following protocols for Single Sign-On in IRIX:
