Configuring Auto Sign on

Allowing users to be automatically signed on by IP address or through an external provider.

Easysite supports Direct and Brokered Authentication patterns. Brokered patterns such as federated authentication or Active Directory authentication ensures that the network administers access control, login and group policies. 

Two factor authentication is supported for customers who wish to implement this higher level of control within your Easysite installation. 

Single Sign On 

Easysite supports the implementation of the Active Directory authentication connectors as standard allowing for network authentication against Intranet or Extranet installations. This will provide seamless single sign on and user/group synchronisation whilst ensuring installations adhere to internal login/group policies and allowing access to be logged and reported on.

Easysite also supports single sign-on using Kerberos, NTLM and other 3rd party authentication services and connectors through a pluggable Easysite API. Whilst not usually recommended, it would also be possible to integrate public user (registered visitors) authentication with Facebook.

Administrators can configure IP based authentication and single sign on per domain which many of our customers find useful for providing simple yet restricted access for non-sensitive material to partner organisations.

Federated Authentication

Federated identify management and authentication are supported. Where a 3rd party service is responsible for user accounts please ensure that there are appropriate security policies and functions in place. We strongly advise against allocating the highest level administrative privileges to non-native accounts.

Further information regarding Authentication connectors can be found in the Help Articles section of the Knowledge Base.
