Configure single sign-on 

Set up single sign-on integration between IBM Connections and other IBM products and third-party security products.


How single sign-on works

IBM Connections uses single sign-on (SSO) to secure the transfer of user ID and password information that is used to authenticate with the system. With SSO, users can switch to different applications without needing to authenticate again.

SSO is automatically enabled when IBM Connections is installed on a single WAS profile or when different profiles are federated into the same cell.


Server-to-server authentication

SSO solutions can inadvertently block back-end server-to-server communication. IBM Connections uses a server-to-server authenticator to prevent internal communication being blocked by your SSO solution. The configuration settings for the authenticator are stored in the customAuthenticator element in the LotusConnections-config.xml file.
