Authentication Methods in Siebel

 

Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of the user before he gains access to the application. The process consists of collection of user credentials (such as User Id and Password) and comparing them with pre-stored values.

Following three general authentication methods are supported by Siebel:

 

1)    Database Authentication

  • A separate database login for each user.
  • Users will provide credential details to DBA. DBA will add/modify/delete those users to database.

 

2)    Directory Server Authentication

  • Single database login can be shared among multiple users.
  • Users can directly modify their credentials within Siebel application. It will automatically be synchronized with the directory server.
  • Third party directory server is required.

 

3)    Web Single Sign-On

  • Login once and access multiple applications. This facility is internally managed through tokens.
  • Single database login can be shared among multiple users.
  • Users need to provide their credentials to the DBA.
  • Third party directory server is required.
