Web Policy Agents 2024.6

Cross-domain single sign-on

Cross-domain single sign-on (CDSSO) is an AM capability that lets users access multiple independent services from a single login session, using the agent to transfer a validated session ID on a single DNS domain or across domains.

Without AM’s CDSSO, SSO cannot be implemented across domains; the session cookie from one domain would not be accessible from another domain. For example, in a configuration where the AM server (am.example.com) is in a different DNS domain than the web agent (myapp.website.com), single sign-on would not be possible.

Web Agent works in CDSSO mode by default, regardless of the DNS domain of the AM servers and the DNS domain of the web agents.
