Single Sign-On (SSO)
cidaas' Single Sign-On (SSO) functionality enables your customers to register or log in once and effortlessly navigate across your multiple websites without needing to log in again.
A good example of the use of SSO is in Google’s services. You need only be signed in to one primary Google account to access different services like YouTube, Gmail, Google+, Google Analytics, and more.
The basic process of SSO is as follows:
- The first step is logging into the main service (Facebook or Google, for instance).
- When you visit a new service, it redirects you to the original (or parent) service to check if you are logged in at that one.
- An OTP (One-time password) token is returned.
- The OTP token is then verified by the new service from the parent’s servers, and only after successful verification is the user granted entry.
SSO is available for both Social Login and Registration.
