Single Sign-On (SSO)

What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

SSO is an acronym for Single sign-on.

It is an authentication scheme that allows a user to log in with a single ID to any of several related, yet independent, software systems.

True single sign-on allows the user to log in once and access services without re-entering authentication factors each time.

An example would be a user logging into their computer work station, and then opening a web application in their browser without needing to log in a second time to the web application.

Certain Self hosted editions of our MIDAS web application allow SSO with an Active Directory.
