Single Sign On to the Cloud
In this animated presentation Chief technology Officer Mike Cartwright, shows how Pirean's Access: One solution can extend Single Sign-On from the data centre to the Cloud.
Single Sign On to a Cloud based application
With Access:One installed and configured in your datacentre Sign-on can be extended from within the Datacentre to applications residing in the cloud.
In the example shown, a user has an active Access:One session linked to Application A.
Consider the scenario where the user now wants to connect to Application B.
Application B is also configured to use Access:One to manage its authorisation workflow.
It makes a call to Access:One to determine its authorisation requirements.
In this particular example Application B has Sign-on enabled in its Access:One service definition.
Both Applications are defined as belonging to the Security Realm "Internal Apps" and Application B is recorded as requiring a lower Security Level than Application A.
As we already Trust our user, based on the active session on Application A, there is no need to request additional confirmation of his identity.
Access:One automatically creates a new session for Application B.
Application B receives confirmation from Access:One that the session exists.
Our user has successfully signed on to Application B without any interaction.
