Single Sign On Authentication provides your users with a seamless authentication experience when they navigate either through the applications you have built and/or third party apps. Once your users log in to one of these applications, they won’t have to enter their credentials again when accessing another one. Don’t make your internal employees or your external users go through the hassle of maintaining and remembering yet another credential.
Single Sign On works by having a central server, which all the applications trust. When you log in for the first time, a cookie gets created on this central server. Then, whenever you try to access a second application, you get redirected to the central server. If you already have a cookie there, you will get redirected directly to the app with a token without login prompts. Which means you’re already logged in.
For example, Google implements Single Sign On in its services. Google’s central server is https://accounts.google.com. Once you are logged in this server, you will be able to access Gmail, Youtube, and Google Docs without entering your credentials again.
Imagine having the same experience but with your own Enterprise and/or Cloud applications!
