What is SSO ?


Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that enables users to access multiple applications with  one-click login  and one set of credentials. For example, after users log in to your org, they can automatically access all apps from the App Launcher. When you set up SSO, you configure one system to trust another to authenticate users , eliminating users' need to log in to each system separately. The system that authenticates users is called an Identity provider. The system that trusts the identity provider for authentication is called the Service provider.

SAML allows exchanging of information between Service Provider and Identity provider, SAML is integration between SP and IDP. When a user tries to log in, your identity provider sends SAML assertions containing facts about the user to Identity Provider. Identity Provider receives the assertion, validates it against your Identity Provider configuration, and allows the user to access your org.

Why companies uses Jumpcloud:-


Using Active Directory (AD) in the connected online world creates authentication challenges. AD cannot authenticate users who try to access integrated applications externally. In the modern workplace, users often need to access applications that are not owned or managed by their organization’s AD. Jumpcloud is able to resolve and simplify these third-party authentication challenges.
Jumpcloud allows users from one organization to access applications of partner organizations using the standard credentials of their organization’s Active Directory (AD). Jumpcloud also lets users access AD-integrated applications while working remotely using their standard organizational AD credentials via a web interface. When establishing a partnership to use another organization’s web applications, Jumpcloud provides a central place to manage and audit the employee identity information that is shared with their organization’s partners. Over 90% of organizations use Active Directory, which means many use Jumpcloud as well.

What is the use of the configuration or integration with SAML SSO?


Miniorange Provides best SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) solution to Active Directory Federation Services. SSO reduces the number of attack surfaces because users only log in once each day and only use one set of credentials. Reducing login to one set of credentials improves enterprise security. When employees have to use separate passwords for each app, they usually don't.
Single Sign-On (SSO) is a highly secure user authentication process. SSO lets the users access multiple applications with a single account credential and sign out instantly with one click. Mini orange Joomla plugin supports SSO. To provide single sign-on services for your domain, Joomla acts as a service provider (SP) through the SAML (Secure Assertion Markup Language) standard.

SSO with Jumpcloud :-


Active Directory Federation Service (Jumpcloud) is a software component developed by Microsoft to provide Single Sign-On (SSO) authorization service to users on Windows Server Operating Systems. Jumpcloud allows users across organizational boundaries to access applications on Windows Server Operating Systems using a single set of login credentials.

Jumpcloud makes use of claims-based Access Control Authorization model to ensure security across applications using the federated identity. Claims-based authentication is a process in which a user is identified by a set of claims related to their identity. The claims are packaged into a secure token by the identity provider.
