Leveraging SAML for Federated Single Sign-On: Seamless Integration with Web-Based Applications Whether Cloud-Based, Private, On-Premise, or Behind a Firewall
Putting an end to users' complaints about the requirement to remember multiple passwords is an objective in many organizations. With multiple web applications being accessed, IT staff also struggle to manage multiple user repositories. For example, when a password changes in one repository, it typically is not updated in the others. This can lead to security and support issues that make it even more difficult to implement a password security policy across multiple systems. To solve these issues the user may look towards Single Sign-On (SSO) as a solution to eliminate multiple password prompts and streamline access for the user. However, many SSO solutions are costly and difficult to implement to effectively handle all user access scenarios.
