Feature Enhancement to Opendelight: Enable Single Sign-On for Your Application

Sep 21, 2016

A new feature has been added to the Opendelight, where you can incorporate the feature of Single Sign On (SSO) from different popular Identity Providers like Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, and Microsoft Live. The major advantage of this feature on the Opendelight is that you do not need to write a single line of code for the purpose.

Keeping tab of multitude of access details across Social Media and other service portals online have created a big hurdle for the users to maintain and control sensitive records like password. Many a time, these codes may be the same across different sites for the user, thus creating a clear window for security breach.

At present, SSO is being adopted by different Application Providers to eliminate the redundancy of managing different Access Codes across different online software systems and to increase better control and manageability on the part of the software users. However, the implementation of such features needs the understanding of respective API suites of these Identity Providers, integration procedures within the software applications being developed, and ensuring appropriate access privileges.

The Opendelight has provided a simplified procedure of implementing SSO from within the IDE (Integrated Development Environment). We have also provided exhaustive documentation to achieve such implementation and how to receive requisite details from respective Identity Providers.

The Download archive, Get Started Guide, Framework FAQs, and Comprehensive Documentation about the Framework are available on the website to read and download.

To enable SSO for your application on the Opendelight, please refer to the documentation below to create a new App and to receive requisite details from respective Identity Providers.
