SAML Single Sign-on (SSO) for GitHub provides the owners and admins of the GitHub enterprise cloud a more secure access for the end users and more control to manage the application access. All the organizations resources, repositories, pull requests, etc. can be managed in a better and convenient way using miniOrange SSO. Each GitHub account can be linked with one SAML Identity through which we can validate the users membership in an organization and provide appropriate access using SAML Single Sign-on.
Prerequisites for GitHub SSO:
In this flow, the user tries to access to the Service Provider (GitHub enterprise cloud) organization directly. The request is redirected to the Identity Provider for authentication. On successful authentication from the Identity provider, the user is given access to the application.
In this flow, the user logs in or access to the Identity Provider using his credentials. Now the user can access any of the organization's configured Service Providers (GitHub enterprise cloud, etc.) through the Identity Provider Dashboard without having to enter the credentials again. Login to login.xecurify.com or get the user login link from miniOrange admin to access the GitHub application from miniOrange user dashboard.
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.

A. Restricting access to GitHub with IP Blocking
You can use adaptive authentication with GitHub Single Sign-On (SSO) to improve the security and functionality of Single Sign-On. You can allow a IP Address in certain range for SSO or you can deny it based your requirements and you can also challenge the user to verify his authenticity. Adaptive authentication manages the user authentication bases on different factors such as Device ID, Location, Time of Access, IP Address and many more.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with IP Blocking in following way:
|Allow||Allow user to authenticate and use services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|Challenge||Challenge users with one of the three methods mentioned below for verifying user authenticity.|
|Deny||Deny user authentications and access to services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|User second Factor||The User needs to authenticate using the second factor he has opted or assigned for such as
|KBA (Knowledge-based authentication)||The System will ask user for 2 of 3 questions he has configured in his Self Service Console. Only after right answer to both questions user is allowed to proceed further.|
|OTP over Alternate Email||User will receive a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Console. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.|
B. Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.
Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users will be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with Device Restriction in following way
C. Add Adaptive Authentication policy to GitHub.
D.Notification and Alert Message.
This section handles the notifications and alerts related to Adaptive Authentication.It provides the following options :
|Challenge Completed and Device Registered||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user completes a challenge and registers a device.|
|Challenge Completed but Device Not Registered||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user completes a challenge but do not registers the device.|
|Challenge Failed||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user fails to complete the challenge.|
