miniOrange Unique Features

External Database Integration

Authenticate your users via any external database or API. This is also relevant to your case. Suppose you want to keep your users in WordPress only and do not want to move them. But since WordPress is not an IDP. You can use miniOrange as a broker to authenticate via WordPress database and miniOrange will do session management.

Protocol Brokering

Protocol Brokering helps you to Single Sign-On(SSO) into any application via IDP supporting any protocol SAML, OAuth, OpenId,etc. It allows all your SSO, MFA, User Management requirements with cross protocol support between your apps

SSO Connector Support

miniOrange also provides connectors for many platforms/cms which do not support single sign-on to enable SSO in them like WordPress, Atlassian, Joomla, Drupal, etc.

Limitations of Open Source IdPs

  1. EOL (End-of-Life) -

    One of the major concerns that rely on open-source products is that the host can declare their End Of Life anytime. This is not the case with proprietary solutions.

  2. The difficulty of use -

    Some open source applications may be tricky to set up and use. Others may lack user-friendly interfaces or features or guides that your staff may be familiar with. This can affect productivity and prevent your staff from adopting or using programs with ease.

  3. Compatibility issues -

    Many types of proprietary hardware need specialized drivers to run open-source programs, which are often only available from the equipment manufacturer. This can potentially add to the cost of your project. Even if an open-source driver exists, it may not work with your software as well as the proprietary driver.

  4. Liabilities and warranties -

    With proprietary software, the developer usually provides indemnification and warranty as part of a standard license agreement. This is because they fully control and copyright the product and its underlying code. Open-source software licenses typically contain only limited warranty and no liability or infringement indemnity protection.

  5. Hidden costs -

    Software that is free up-front but later costs money to run can be a major burden, especially if you haven't considered hidden costs from the outset.
