    • Single Sign On (SSO) http://www.ifour-consultancy.com Benefits, challenges and case study
    • Definition • Single sign-on (SSO)is a session/user authentication process that permits a user to enter one username and password in order to access multiple applications. The process authenticates the user for all the applications they have been given rights to and eliminates further prompts when they switch applications during a particular session.
    • Types of SSO • Holy Grail • Enterprise SSO • Synchronization SSO • Web SSO
    • HOLY GRAIL ACTIVE DIR UNIX LINUX MAC JAVA SAP • One identity gives you a single login. • That single login to single directory gives you seamless access to all the applications. • It is the most efficient ,secure and compliant way to do SSO.
    • ENTERPRISE ACTIVE DIR LOGIN AUTOMATION DB2 ORACLE • Often also called as login automation. • The end users login once, but behind the scenes the automation tool logs in to all the applications they need • The user has convenience but the IT staff still has to manage all the systems login, cause actual login still happens to all the systems.
    • SYNC UNIX LINUX MAC JAVA SAP ACTIVE DIR Sync Tool ok • A Sync Tool synchronizes all the directories and all the passwords across the system.
    • WEB SSO ACTIVE DIR UNIX LINUX MAC JAVA SAP INTERNET • Allows the users which are coming remotely ,in a single login ,instead of multiple logins in multiple sessions.

    • Drawbacks • “Keys to the Castle”: As single sign- on provides access to many resources once the user is initially authenticated it increases the negative impact in case the credentials are available to other persons and misused. • Single point of failure
    • • Therefore, single sign-on requires an increased focus on the protection of the user credentials, and should ideally be combined with strong authentication methods • Advance + Combined Methods • smart cards • one-time password tokens • Fingerprint Scanner and Keystroke Dynamics • Strict policies and standards • Added cost Drawbacks Something You Are Something You Have Something You Know
    • Drawbacks • Single sign-on also makes the authentication systems highly critical; a loss of their availability can result in denial of access to all systems unified under the SSO. SSO can thus be undesirable for systems to which access must be guaranteed at all times, such as security or plant-floor systems. SSO
