Hooks to enable the SSO Authentication for SSPDashboard URL

No description provided
What is your industry? Aerospace & Defense
How will this idea be used?

These days many enterprise organizations are required to have a single authentication and authorization scheme to manage/access various web applications, this gives the flexibility to the enterprise to change the authentication scheme at one place to meet the ever-changing security requirements without affecting the bunch of applications. While this is the current trend, we don't have a provision to configure/accept SSO from different SSO providers for SSP Dashboard URL. Adding this functionality aligns the SSP Dashboard URL to meet the security requirements.

    Hi Vijay,


    The purpose of this RFE is different from what has been delivered in SSP & SEAS 6.0 version. This RFE is opened to provide hooks to enable the SSO for the Configuration Manager Dashboard URL. Please let me know if you need any additional details on this topic.

    Ability to support external identity providers based on SAML 2.0 prorocol has been implemented and delivered in IBM Secure Proxy 6.0 release. Hence close the idea request.

    Hi, As we are considering this enhancement for our next release, we plan to support SSO authentication per SAML specifications. I would like to know your preferred SSO provider so that we can plan to validate our implementation against. Could you please provide your inputs? Thanks,
