Trusted Authentication

Trusted Authentication relies on a reverse proxy to authenticate users. A user’s identity is passed through to SD Elements within incoming HTTP headers.

Configure Trusted Authentication for Single Sign-on

Follow the steps below to configure Trusted Authentication for Single Sign-on.

This is not a secure SSO method unless all traffic going into SDE is intercepted by a trusted server (such as a proxy) which verifies that all requests are authenticated. Otherwise this allows anyone to set the header in an HTTP request and authenticate themselves.
  • The application user is a Super User.

  • Trusted Authentication Information

    • Email address: The name of the header containing a user’s email address

    • First name: The name of the header containing a user’s first name.

    • Last name: The name of the header containing a user’s last name.

    • Login URL: Location where unauthenticated should be redirected.

    • Logout URL: Location where users are redirected upon logout.

  1. Login to the SD Elements web application

  2. From the gear icon menu, select Authentication.

  3. Select option "Trusted Authentication" for SSO Type

  4. Update the fields using the Trusted Authentication Information.

  5. Click Save
