A single-sign-on system allows to minimize the number of required user interactions when accessing multiple web applications. This is a gain in ergonomics and security. Indeed, authentication centralization enables to focus on securing the authentication mechanisms on a central server, managing authentication.

We offer the Authentic 2 platform as the privileged federation technology deployment tool for both identity provider and federation proxy/gateway roles. Authentic 2 relies on the Lasso library.
