Red Hat Single Sign On

Red Hat Single Sign-On - Integration Guide

Red Hat Single Sign-On simplifies security for web apps and RESTful web services by offering a ready-made solution for single sign-on. It streamlines the process for application developers to secure their deployed apps and services within their organization. This platform provides pre-built security features, eliminating the need for developers to create them from scratch. It adheres to open protocol standards like OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0 to ensure application security.

This guide demonstrates how to generate Red Hat Single Sign-On realm signing keys using Luna HSM. These keys are essential for signing access tokens and XML documents exchanged between the authentication server and the application. Utilizing Luna HSM for key generation brings forth significant benefits, including:

  • Ensuring secure key generation, storage, and protection through FIPS 140-2 level 3 validated hardware.
  • Providing full life cycle management of the keys.
  • Maintaining an audit trail through HSM.
  • Achieving significant performance enhancements by offloading cryptographic operations from application servers.
