Enterprise single sign on (SSO) using OpenID Connect and OAuth2

New feature for those who work with implementing Next® in an enterprise IT landscape.

When you implement Next® in an enterprise, you typically use the existing user management and authentication infrastructure. Inside a company network, this may be Active Directory, and Kerberos.

Once you move outside the company network - e.g. into the cloud - you need other options. Options we provide with Next® Enterprise Single Sign On. With support for SAML 2.0, Next® Enterprise Single Sign On allows you to implement seamless SSO (Single sign on and off) with e.g. Office 365, and services like ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services.)   



Now Next® Enterprise Single Sign On, also supports authentication based on OpenID Connect and OAuth2 in addition to SAML. With OpenID Connect there is virtually no limit to what identity provider you can use - Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Zendesk to name a few. 

For the techie ones

This allows you to secure both REST APIs and browser access using JWTs.
