Skedler supports security plugins like X-pack, open distro, search guard, Nginx, and security onion. Now our latest version of Skedler v4.12 supports SSO with OpenId Connect and Azure AD
What is SSO in Azure AD:
Single sign-on (SSO) adds security and convenience when users sign-on to applications in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). This article describes the single sign-on methods and helps you choose the most appropriate SSO method when configuring Skedler application.
Choosing a single sign-on authentication method in Skedler V4.12:
There are several ways to configure Skedler application with a security plugin but we choose open distro security plugin because Open Distro for Elasticsearch gives you a comprehensive set of features to help you keep your data secure and stay compliant with regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, and ISO. Whether you want to encrypt data-in-transit, authenticate users against Active Directory, use Kerberos or JSON web tokens for single sign-on (SSO), or monitor and log any malicious access attempts, Open Distro for Elasticsearch has you covered.
On-premises applications can use password-based, Integrated Windows Authentication, header-based, linked, or disabled methods for single sign-on.
With password-based sign-on, users sign on to the application with a username and password the first time they access it. After the first sign-on, Azure AD supplies the username and password to the application.
Password-based single sign-on uses the existing authentication process provided by the application. When you enable password single sign-on for an application, Azure AD collects and securely stores usernames and passwords for the application. User credentials are stored in an encrypted state in the directory.
