Single Sign-On

datapine implements Single Sign-on (SSO) using JWT (JSON Web Token), an open standard (RFC7519)that allows two web applications to securely share claims, suchas permissions or user roles.


JWT is a JSON object created by the third-party application in order to provide authentication for a user to a remote system. The JSON object is then signed via a cryptographically secure algorithm, using a key which is a shared secret between the third-party application and the service provider. The resulting JWT can be verified for authenticity and integrity by both parties and is therefore trusted.

datapine requires and follows a precise sequence of requests to securely obtain the JWT.
