Abstract [en]

The systems' complexity growth over wide networks has increased the need for a centralized access control and strong authentication methods. And because systems have become increasingly distributed, additional need for single sign on solutions have become even more relevant.

The aim of this study is to draw the state of the art on strong authentication solutions for protecting resources over networks and establish an evaluation summary of all the solutions presented. The study also presents the single sign on functionality and different architectures to implement it.

This study contains a market review of available commercial solutions that implement strong authentication and single sign on. One of the solution is selected for implementing the authentication service for a payroll management system for one of Accenture clients. The technical details regarding this product are presented including architecture, installation and tests.

The tested product needed custom developments to successfully implement the certificate authentication combined with an advanced certificate validation service. The single sign on functionality requires custom development to be integrated with all the system components.
