Cloud App Security: Three Authentication Approaches

Our Favourite Three Security Authentication Options For Cloud-Based Apps

Cloud app security is crucial to you preventing a potentially disastrous failure. Here we list K&C's the top 3 authentication options. We use them to keep our client data safe and you can too.Review the short list below to take a vital step towards protecting your business:


OIDC (Open ID Connect) is a JSON-based open standard for authentication developed in 2014 by the non-profit OpenID Foundation. It works on top of the OAuth 2.0, which allows you to verify the client’s identity and obtain basic profile information. This is primarily used for securing cloud-based consumer apps.


OIDC allows web and mobile clients to receive data on authenticated sessions and end users.Users should create an OpenID account through an OpenID identity provider (such as Facebook). The user may then use that account to sign into any website or application that accepts OpenID Facebook authentication.


WordPress, Yahoo, and PayPal are among the notable adopters of OpenID Connect authentication. This is a great option if you are looking for a secure solution for centralized verification for mobile software.



OAuth2 is a JSON-based open standard for authorization that provides access delegation to other websites without giving them passwords. Developed in 2006 by Google and Twitter, it is primarily used as an API authorization.


OAuth2 is used by companies such as Twitter, Google, and Facebook to allow users to share their account information with third-party websites. For example, the user might want to import Facebook contacts. OAuth2 takes the user to Facebook where he/she logs in, authenticates their identity and is then permitted to share his/her Facebook friend list.


This is a perfect option if your cloud app security use case involves temporary or permanent access to resources.


SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML-based open standard for authentication and authorization. Developed in 2001 by OASIS, it is primarily used for enterprise apps.


Personal data are exchanged among three roles: a user, the identity provider (IdP), and the service provider (SP). The SP decides whether a service can be performed for the connected user by requesting identity assertion from the IdP. Before passing the identity assertion to the SP, the IdP may request a user name and password to verify the user. Intel, HP, and IBM are among the big players that use SAML.


SAML is a good option if your use case needs a centralized identity source or involves SSO.


The right choice of an authentication option requires a detailed understanding of the listed protocols to map them correctly to your requirements.


If you are still hesitating about which cloud app security option is right for your business, perhaps we can help.


At K&C, our Munich-based web development and cloud services consutlancy, we deal with security issues every day. That's why we are able to provide solutions that satisfy our clients’ most sophisticated requirements around securing their cloud-based apps.
