The Curity Authentication Service powers centralized authentication, removing the pain of determining who the user is from your apps. It allows for customized authentication flows and comes with many ready-made authentication methods and actions. It enables many use cases, you can see a few below:
Customized authentication flows with many ready-made authentication methods and actions
There are many possible ways to authenticate users. The Curity Identity Server supports a long list of established authentication methods, you can also build your own using our SDK.
Authentication Actions allows you to orchestrate what happens after the credentials are verified but before the session is committed. In other words. the user has been validated, but the system hasn’t yet produced an authenticated session, which later can be used for Single Sign-On etc.
Actions are executed in the configured order so they can be chained and depend on each other. They can look up information in databases, prompt the user for more information or run other activities to ensure proper authentication and a secure login.
Curity Admin UI
Directly transform values coming various data sources.
Replace a foreign username/domain used at login with a linked username.
Creates a link between a foreign incoming account from the authenticator to the local account.
Finds all associated links for a local account.
Combine a number of actions and represent them as a single action, allowing you create more complex flows.
Create workflows and execute different actions based upon on conditions.
Run additional authenticators depending on the context of a specific user log-in.
Allows you to remove one (or many) of the incoming attributes at authentication.
Prompts the user to update their password.
Checks the subject attributes, and if a required attribute is not found, the user will be prompted to fill the missing attributes.
Create regex-expressions that transforms names and values during the authentication process.
Curity not only enables two factor authentication, but advanced multi-factor possibilities by chaining authentication methods as needed. Being the most advanced multi-factor framework available, Curity lets you chain any number of authentication methods in any order, to create a strong and user friendly login experience.
A common scenario is to combine username/password with a second factor such as an SMS to a phone, a keyfob or an app. This reduces the risk of accounts being compromised due to password theft.
With the Curity Identity Server the customer never leaves your organization’s brand. The user-facing screens can be tailor made to match your needs. If your organization has several brands this can also be embedded and used depending on where the user is. The templating system enables an overlay possibility of existing templates with your choice of colors, logos and fonts. It is possible to completely style the look and feel. You can mix and match with built-in and custom templates as needed.
Let the user navigate seamlessly between mobile apps and websites in the mobile browser without having to re-authenticate. Using OpenID Connect, Curity Identity Server has built in support for single sign-on between mobile apps and mobile web-pages.
Define how users create accounts, reset passwords and link multiple accounts during authentication. Self-service is about enabling theusers to handle the accounts themselves. Did the user forget the password, or wants to register a new phone? Allowing the user to perform these actions during authentication is a great way to improve user experience and increase usage of your services!
User self-service greatly reduces the support burden imposed by authentication and registration. All changes are stored in your own user repository, which can be integrated via SCIM, SQL, LDAP or your own API
Establish single sign-on all across your websites and mobile apps by simply configuring the ready-made Curity Authentication Service. Deciding which authentication methods that shall be used under which circumstances grants a low-friction access to your services.
The Curity Identity Server supports many ways to connect your OAuth and OpenID Connect enabled clients and APIs with proper authentication methods, stylised with your own look-and-feel. With the Curity SDK you can also build your own authentication method in an easy way, and the new method will be configured and used exactly like the built-in ones:
Net iD Access
SITHS and EFOS
SMS with Hyperlink
SMS One Time Password
Integrated Windows Authentication
