Why do we need single sign on?
Many organization have many applications with different authentication mechanism making it difficult to administer because of the following reasons:
a. Need for centralizing the user administration
b. Users need not remember separate password for different apps
c. Authentication can be done from one source
The IT managers are very much concerned about the integrity of the data and they are looking at implementing the Single Sign On while seriously calculating the ROI of such implementation.
Single Sign On, provides immediate benefit of logon to multiple applications by providing a single username and password. SSO gives the end users an seamless experience of accessing the application. Administration and maintenance of their password and its relevant policy becomes much more easier to maintain too.
We can implement SSO using many ways, we will try to see the different scenarios in the Single Sign On and what are the ways we have to implement so in other article soon.
