We continue with our series of AOE Conference 2017 talks. AOE developer Sebastian Rose presented “AOE Identity Service: AOE Single Sign On (SSO) via an OpenID Provider.”
In his talk, Sebastian presumes that AOE, similar to other companies, offers its employees a number of services, for instance:
In addition, customers are another target audience for services, some of which are used by both groups. In order to fulfill these requirements, it can be assumed that software as a service or APIs for customers and / or employees will be the state-of-the-art in the future.
However, this situation has implications for the security of such services. One answer to this challenge is the concept of an AOE Identity and Access Management platform. This provides SSO for services to both AOE employees and customers.
