SSO is made possible by a centralized authentication service that all apps (even third-party) can use to confirm a user’s identity. Identity standards like SAMLSAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) A standard, XML-based, message-exchange framework enabling the secure transmittal of authentication tokens and other user attributes across domains., OAuthOAuth A standard framework that enables an application (OAuth client) to obtain access tokens from an OAuth authorization server for the purpose of retrieving protected resources on a resource server., and OpenID Connect (OIDC)OpenID Connect (OIDC)OIDC An authentication protocol built on top of OAuth that authenticates users and enables clients (relying parties) of all types to request and receive information about authenticated sessions and users. OIDC is extensible, allowing clients to use optional features such as encryption of identity data, discovery of OpenID Providers (OAuth authorization servers), and session management. allow for encrypted tokens to be transmitted securely between the server and the apps to indicate that a user has already been authenticated and has permission to access the additional apps.
