SINGLE SIGN ON (SSO) FOR ORACLE EBS
miniOrange provides a ready to use solution for oracle-ebs. This solution ensures that you are ready to roll out secure access to oracle-ebs to your employees within minutes.

Oracle EBS

Oracle E-Business Suite is a major product line of Oracle Corporation. Oracle EBS is a combined set of business applications for automating customer relationship management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) processes within organizations.

For web applications that do not provide support for federated single sign-on, we have miniOrange Secure Single Sign-On browser plugins for SSO. Here, it is enabled on an application, where end users see an icon on their home pages and browsers, through this users can set and update their credentials. ( In the secure store for that application only).


miniOrange Supports all Browser Extension

  • miniOrange Secure Single Sign-On Plugins for SSO support all popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
  • Browser plugin a secure driven post to the application login page, signing in the user automatically on their behalf. - The plug-in does not store the credentials anywhere and they are discarded once the user has signed into the application.
  • Users credentials are stored in an encrypted format by using AES encryption with the combination of a customer-specific private key. When a user clicks the application icon, miniOrange securely posts the username/password to the app login page over SSL and the user is automatically logged in.

miniOrange Identity Management Features

  • Multi-factor Authentication

    Secure your Oracle EBS application from password thefts using multi-factor authentication methods with 15+ authentication types provided by miniOrange. Our multi-factor authentication methods prevent unauthorized users from accessing information and resources having password alone as an authentication factor. Enabling second-factor authentication for Oracle EBS protects you against password thefts. Learn More

  • IP Blocking

    miniOrange provides IP blocking/IP restriction for Oracle EBS login which adds security to Gmail, Web and other applications. In this, we provide you option for IP blocking which includes both automatic (based on user behavior) and manual IP blocking which includes blacklisting and whitelisting of IP addresses to provide access restriction, the office only access, intranet access & network restriction. Learn More

  • Adaptive Authentication

    miniOrange Adaptive Authentication aims to provide a better experience to reduce the authentication burder on users while enforcing strong authentication where it is needed the most. For example, when a user attempts to access an application via an unregistered device then they may be prompted to register it. If the user logs in from a geographical location other than their office, they may be asked to answer security questions. Learn More

  • User Provisioning

    miniOrange User Provisioning provides an easy way of creation, management and maintenance of end users especially for large enterprises to reduce the risk for unauthourized access of information. User proviosiong includes the creation, updation and deletion of user accounts. User provisioning makes life easier for admins because they do not have to manually arrange access for each user.

Workflow:


Oracle EBS Single Sign On

1.The User sends the request to access the resource from the application.

2. The Application sends an authentication request to miniOrange.

3. The miniOrange forwards the authentication request to Active Directory via miniOrange Gateway.

4. Active Directory sends the response to application through miniOrange. This response contains the user’s information as well as the authentication status, based on which the user is given access to the resource.

5. Upon successful authentication, the user is given access to the resource.




We can connect with any External IDP/Directory

miniOrange provides user authentication from external directories like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc. It also provides user authentication with other IDPs like Shibboleth, PING, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak and many more.

Can't find your IDP ? Contact us on idpsupport@xecurify.com. We'll help you set it up in no time.

    You can use adaptive authentication with Oracle EBS 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

    OTP over Alternate Email User will recieve a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Conolse. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.

  • Now Disbale Allow all IP'S option from the IP Blocking Configuration section to configure custom IP range.
  • Oracle EBS Single Sign On (sso) adaptive authentication ip blocking

  • Select the Action you want to perform if the IP address is out of the range. i.e Allow, Challenge & Deny.
  • Specify the IP Address range for which you want above setting to reflect. You can add more than one IP Address ranges by clicking on following button +.
  • Scroll to the end and click on save.

  • Add Adaptive Authentication policy to Oracle EBS
  • Login to Self Service Console >> Policies.
  • Click on Edit option for predefined SAML app policy.
  • Oracle EBS Single Sign On (sso) edit ip restriction policy

  • Enable Enable Adaptive Authentication option on Policy page and select Device-Id as the Method.

  • Choose Action if number of devices exceeded (This will override your setting for Action for Behaviour Change.)
    1. Challenge: The user needs to verify himself using any of the three methods mentioned in table in step 4.1
    2. Deny : Deny users access to the system
  • Enable option Send email alerts to Users if number of Device registrations exceeded allowed count if you want to alert the user about no of devices exceeding the limit. Save the configuration.
  • Oracle EBS Single Sign On (sso) adaptive authentication device restriction


    Add Adaptive Authentication policy to Oracle EBS

    How to add a trusted Device
    1. When End-user log in to the self service console after the policy for device restriction is on, he is provided the option to add the current device as a trusted device.

Step 5. Sync Password Feature

It's a hassle to configure Username and Password for each user. For an easy and seamless experience, miniOrange provides a password sync feature. This feature is useful for both new users and existing users of Oracle EBS.


1. From a new users perspective:

    For regular password managers, a new user has to manually save his Oracle EBS credentials so that the password manager is able to pick up the credentials and autofill credentials on the login form. It's a hassle for the user. This is where the sync password feature comes into the picture. miniOrange Password sync feature makes this seamless. Users creating their accounts with miniOrange would have their credentials synced to the Oracle EBS application database. miniOrange syncs the password of new users automatically to Oracle EBS application database so that new user does not have to worry about their respective usernames and password.


2. From Existing Users perspective:

    This particular use-case is useful in case when customer admin already has few users and wants to integrate miniOrange for SSO. In this case, customer admin will import all the existing users from the user store into miniOrange. As users are imported miniOrange would generate new passwords for Oracle EBS application. These credentials will then get automatically synced to the Oracle EBS application database.
