Single sign-on (SSO) – Two Sides of One Coin

A successful login to your Gmail account gives you more access than email. You can watch videos on YouTube, write documents on Google Docs or pin your favourite places on Google maps. This special access is called SSO (Single sign-on)

SSO is an authentication mechanism that authenticates the user once and provides access to all the applications. It offers a seamless experience for the user and convenience without entering the password.

With every flexibility, there is another side of the coin. One password to all also means that hackers only need to crack one password to gain access to all the applications. Check out these posts on security concerns for SSO and what are the best SSO implementation practices.
