What is Single Sign-On?
Access Policy Manager® provides a Single Sign-On (SSO) feature that leverages the credential caching and credential proxying technology.
Credential caching and proxying is a two-phase security approach that asks users to enter their credentials once to access their secured web applications. By leveraging this technology, users request access to the secured back-end web server. After that occurs, Access Policy Manager creates a user session and collects the user identity based on the access policy. When the access policy completes successfully, the user identity is saved (cached) in a session database. Access Policy Manager subsequently reuses the cached identity to seamlessly log the user into the secured web applications, thus providing the user with a single sign-on experience.
The Single Sign-On (SSO) feature provides the following benefits:
- Eliminates the need to administer and maintain multiple user logins
- Eliminates the need for users to enter their credentials multiple times.
