Steps to setup Secure Browser SSO Apps

miniOrange supports Single Sign-on into your apps, to securely login for admins and users. miniOrange supports several different protocols for your applications, such as SAML, WS-FED, OAuth, OIDC, JWT, RADIUS, etc. Using Single Sign-on, users can use one set of credentials to login to multiple applications. This improves security, as it reduces avenues for phishing attacks, and also improves access to your application.

For web applications that do not provide support for federated single sign-on, miniOrange provides Secure Single Sign-on browser extension for SSO. Here, it is enabled on an application, where end-users see an icon on their home pages and browsers, through which users can set and update their credentials. ( In the secure store for that application only). miniOrange supports all browser extensions:

  • miniOrange Secure Browser Extension for SSO supports all popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
  • Browser extension provides a secure driven post to the application login page, signing in the user automatically on their behalf. The Extension does not store the credentials anywhere, and they are discarded once the user has signed into the application.
  • Users' credentials are stored in an encrypted format by using AES encryption, with the combination of a customer-specific private key. When a user clicks the application icon, miniOrange securely posts the username/password to the app login page over SSL and the user is automatically logged in.
