SSO Components

The sub services of the Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) service are as follows:

  • Mapping. This component maps the user account in the Windows system to the user accounts in the back-end systems.

  • Lookup. This component looks up the user credentials in the SSO database in the back-end system. This is the SSO runtime component.

  • Administration. This component manages the affiliate applications and the mappings for each affiliate application.

  • Secret. This component generates the master secret and distributes it to the other SSO servers in the system. It is only active on the Single Sign-On server that is acting as the master secret server.

  • Password Synchronization. This component simplifies administration of the SSO database, and keeps passwords in sync across user directories.
