Providing SSO services for .NET and Java web applications
Using the Single Sign On rule set and the generic IceToken cloud connector template, you can configure single sign-on to any .NET or Java web application. Use this option when Web Gateway does not support the web application with a predefined connector or connector template.
Web Gateway implements single sign-on using the IceToken authentication method in the same way that it implements single sign-on using SAML authentication. Single sign-on using the two authentication methods has the following differences:
- In both cases, the Identity Provider sends the user information to the Service Provider in an assertion. The format of the user information in the assertion differs depending on the authentication method used.
- Single sign-on using the IceToken authentication method is simpler and easier to configure than single sign-on using SAML authentication.
