cidaas (customer identity as a service) - is a cloud based service that abstracts how users authenticate to applications. Developed by WidasConcepts, our Customer Identity service provides an easy and simple integration with our pre-built social login, registration and single sign on components. Built using OAuth 2.0 and Open ID connect standards, cidaas is designed to offer scalability, security, transparency and flexibility to manage customer identities and data..
cidaas implements several methods to authenticate users from using an application (written in any language or on any stack):
- Custom Credentials: Username + Passwords.
- Social Network Logins: Google, Facebook, Twitter, or any OAuth2 with OpenID Connect provider.
- Enterprise Directories: Office 365.
- Password less Systems: Face Recognition, Fido U2f, TouchID, Voice Recognition, Pattern, Smart Push, One Time Codes (TOTP), Email, SMS, IVR or Backup Codes.
To give a simplistic view, the picture here shows a demo, where a client Web Portal uses cidaas as its login/registration service.
Purpose of the Document
