Configure Agentless Desktop SSO


Desktop SSOAn acronym for single sign-on. In a SSO system, a user logs in once to the system and can access multiple systems without being prompted to sign in for each one. Okta is a cloud-based SSO platform that allows users to enter one name and password to access multiple applications. Users can access all of their web applications, both behind the firewall and in the cloud, with a single sign in. Okta provides a seamless experience across PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. (DSSO) is the functionality that allows users to be automatically authenticated by Okta, and any apps accessed through Okta, whenever they sign-in to your Windows network. It provides a superior user-experience as users don’t have to sign in multiple times.

It is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. Initially, Active Directory was only in charge of centralized domain management. domains to enable DSSO. This enables you to have no maintenance overhead and also removes the burden of worrying about High Availability as Okta handles the Kerberos validation. ClosedDiagram
