Three Authentication Approaches to Keep Your Clients Safe

The right security approach is one of the crucial steps to prevent a cloud app failure. We've listed the top 3 authentication options to help you keep client data safe. Take care of your business and review the short list below:


OIDC (Open ID Connect) is a JSON-based open standard for authentication developed in 2014 by a 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 consumer apps.


OIDC allows web and mobile clients to receive data about authenticated sessions and end users. A user should get an OpenID account through an OpenID identity provider (such as Facebook), and then the user may use that account to sign into any website that accepts OpenID Facebook authentication.


WordPress, Yahoo, and PayPal are among the adopters of OpenID Connect. 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 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. So, if you still hesitate about which option is right for your business, just delegate this task to a professional web development team.


At K&C, we deal with security issues every day. That's why we are able to provide solutions that satisfy our clients’ most sophisticated requirements regarding security of their cloud-based apps.
