Introduction

Authentication, Login protection, Access & Security, Site Security, Security Tools

Joomla Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process in which a user can log in to multiple applications and/or websites by using only a single set of login credentials (such as username and password). This prevents the need for the user to log in separately to the different applications. Joomla Single-Sign-On addresses the challenge of maintaining the credentials for each application separately, streamlining the process of signing on without the need to re-enter the password.


Joomla SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) – SAML SSO Login Authentication

JOOMLA SINGLE SIGN-ON ( SSO ):-

Joomla Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication procedure that allows a user to log in to various apps and/or websites using a single set of login credentials (such as username and password). This eliminates the need for the user to log in to each application individually.
