Registration and Single Sign On

SinglePoint Strategic Research Portals use SSL certificates that use 128-bit SSL encryption and 256-bit SLL encryption can be achieved by using SGC “super certs” but requires limiting browser version access.  SinglePoint enterprise portals include a system for secure account creation, validation, and management.  Using this system, users register for accounts and are validated by email before they can access the portal.  Therefore, only users with valid customer defined email addresses can create accounts.   All user passwords are stored in an encrypted form.

Methods for Single Sign On

Single Sign On provides added security for SinglePoint portals as well as ease of use for users and administrators.  Users do not need to login and, in many cases, update their user profiles.  Administrators can set business rules for content access and portal functionality to provide a personalized experience for user groups with information provided in the Single Sign On process.   SinglePoint supports several methods for accomplishing Single Sign On:
  • IP Restriction with User Registration
  • SAML
  • Content provider Seamless Registration
  • Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services
  • CA Siteminder
  • Other custom methods as required
