Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication and authorization process that allows a user to use one set of login credentials (username and password) to access multiple applications. With SSO end-users time and efforts get minimized as they don't need to constantly sign in and out separately into the multiple applications. Single Sign-On (SSO) helps users and organizations with the challenge of maintaining the different credentials for different applications separately which streamlines the process of signing on without the need to re-enter the password. SSO is one of the pivotal aspects for many of the Identity and Access management (IAM) and cloud security control solutions. Single Sign-On (SSO) implemented perfectly helps in improving productivity, management, and security reducing the risk of lost, weak, or forgotten passwords.
In IdP Initiated Single Sign-On (SSO), the login request is initiated from Identity Provider (e.g Okta, OneLogin, or Microsoft Azure Active Directory). Enduser first authenticates through IdP Login Credentials. Once authentication is successful, the end-user will be redirected to the targeted application account via the end-user dashboard.
In SP Initiated Single Sign-On (SSO), a login request is initiated from the application end. A user tries to access their account by signing in using the application, which will redirect to their IdP login page. Once users successfully login into their IdP they will be directly logged in to their application.
