I know you are very concerned about the security of your home. You also have spy cameras and alarms to keep an eye on burglars. You are also very concerned about all the passwords you have. And why not, they save your private resources from others. Passwords are the layer between the resources and the user, if entered wrong then the user is not permitted to access the resources. Therefore, passwords permit only the authorized users to access the services. It is very important to keep our data secure. If you have an online business, then keeping data of your users safe is must. So, as a business owner what are you doing to keep your users data secure and safe? If you still do not have any idea about what to do, don’t worry, you are at right place. In this article, I am going to explain about a technology called Single sign-on solution. The technology not only keeps users data safe but also improves their experience.
What is Single Sign-On?
Single sign-on or SSO, is an important solution that allows your users and customers to login to the multiple websites of your business using single set of credentials. This reduces the number of passwords to remember. Without SSO, users have different passwords for different websites. There are many advantages of SSO but first let me explain why the technology is secure and safe.
How SSO adds security?
I always keep the same credentials for many websites because creating and remembering different credentials for all the websites is not easy. Since sso reduces the number of passwords, now users need only one credential to remember. This results in creating a strong pair of username and password that is hard to crack.
The solution is also based on SAML(security assertion markup language). SAML completely follows XML standard that makes the solution secure. It behaves like a layer between the authorized user and the domain. Once the user enters his credentials then the detail is verified by local service provider and once it is verified, user gets the permission to access websites that are deployed with SSO. Thus, SSO solution is a very hard nut to crack.
