Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication service that enables users to use one set of login credentials to access multiple applications.
HOW DOES SSO FUNCTION?
A certificate is shared between Grovo and your platform, so both parties can identify each other securely. Once SSO is configured, and a user attempts to access Grovo, the user is authenticated against your platform, and if successful, is taken to Grovo’s site and logged in.
- Your platform must support SSO as an Identity Provider and must use one of the following standards/protocols for authentication: SAML, OAuth, OpenID, CAS.
- There are several popular identity access management systems that use SAML as their underlying authentication format. These include: OneLogin, Okta, Bitium, ADFS, and more.
- The two parties in SSO are called the Identity Provider (IdP), which is your platform, and the Service Provider (SP), which is Grovo. Grovo supports both IdP- and SP-initiated SSO.
