Utility
Systems and methods for providing single sign-on capability
5 Oct 21
The disclosed computer-implemented method for providing single sign-on capability may include intercepting, during an authentication session with a network resource, a single sign-on request generated by an application executing on a computing device, redirecting the single sign-on request to a separate computing device for execution, receiving, in response to authentication of at least one user credential from the separate computing device, an authentication decision that the separate computing device obtained from an identity provider (IDP) by executing the single sign-on request and injecting the authentication decision received from the separate computing device into the application where the single sign-on request was originally generated to complete the authentication session.
