SSO/Rest

True Web Access Management as a Service through SSO/Rest

SSO/Rest delivers CA Single Sign-On (formerly named CA SiteMinder) functionality through a simple HTTP-based RESTful interface, which has been hardened and secured to safely provide enterprise SSO, authentication, session management, and access management over the public cloud.

Built specifically for CA Single Sign-On, IDF Connect’s SSO/Rest uses the rich features of the HTTP protocol to provide a REST interface that enables you to put applications in the cloud and protect them with CA Single Sign-On as if they were in your own data center.

  • SSO/Rest is a protocol developed by IDF Connect that anyone can implement and that provides a REST-based interface to an SSO product for web access management.
  • Based on many years of real-world identity integrations, SSO/Rest delivers CA Single Sign-On functionality through a simple HTTP-based RESTful interface, which has been hardened and secured to safely provide enterprise SSO, authentication, session management, and access management over the public cloud.

SSO/Rest can be used in public cloud IaaS or PaaS environments in lieu of traditional heavier and proprietary CA Single Sign-On plug-ins, so that you can use your existing CA SSO infrastructure to manage these applications exactly as if they were in your own data center.

SSO/Rest extends CA Single Sign-On support to Web 2.0 technologies and enhances its protection of Web 2.0 applications.  SSO/Rest also provides “internal-facing” services that meet the needs of server-side applications needing a tight SSO integration.
