User Authentication ...
User authentication is a process of validating the authenticity of a given user in ShareKnowledge LMS based on the username and password (or other unique and secure identifiers).
User authentication by means of ShareKnowledge is performed by verification of the user's account name stored in session against the account name stored in the table containing information about ShareKnowledge users.
The following SharePoint Authentication Providers can be used in ShareKnowledge:
- Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS)
- Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS)
- Form-Based Authentication Provider (FBA)
- Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), including integration with Office 365
Besides the standard providers listed above, it may be required to develop and use an individual authentication provider.
