Single Sign On

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a system that allows a user's account information to be used by a service, like Aristotle Metadata Registries, without revealing their password. Aristotle Metadata has chosen Microsoft Azure AD as its SSO provider by default.

The reason for implementing SSO for Aristotle Metadata staff is to simplify their login process. Currently all users including Aristotle Metadata staff need to sign up or be invited to each separate registry and maintain a username and password for each registry as well, given the number of different production and testing/development registries this becomes tedious and poses a security issue if credential leak was to occur. This can be cumbersome, especially since there are multiple production and testing/development registries. It also poses a security risk if login credentials were to be compromised.

By implementing and enforcing SSO for Aristotle Metadata staff, the risk of credential leakage is reduced, and it becomes easier for staff to access the registries they need for their work.
