Built on a strong foundation of security fundamentals, we provide secure and reliable Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions that integrate seamlessly with the customer's existing frameworks. We provide SSO solutions for all the Atlassian applications using protocols like SAML, OAuth 2.0, OIDC, etc. SSO enables users to securely authenticate with multiple applications by logging in only once - with just one set of login credentials.

What is SSO:

Single sign-on (SSO) is a session and user authentication service that allows a user to use one set of login credentials (e.g., username and password) to access multiple services and applications.

In SSO, credentials of all the users are stored on the trusted third party, Identity Provider(IDP). That IDP is connected to the application providing services, Service Provider(SP). Now whenever a user tries to access any service on SP, a request to sent to IDP and it authenticates the user and then the user can access services on SP. The IDP is connected to many SPs. So for using services on all those SPs, we need to remember only one set of credentials(IDP credentials).

For Single sign-on, most commonly used protocols are SAML, Kerberos/NTLM, OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect (OIDC), JWT, etc
