Single Sign-On (SSO) is a method of authentication that allows a user to access multiple applications or websites with a single set of credentials.

The goal of SSO is to make it easier for users to access the resources they need while increasing security by reducing the number of times a user needs to provide their credentials. It can also track the usage of specific resources and identify who is using which resource and detect any potential security threats or suspicious activity.

In a school, SSO is commonly used to provide employees or students with access to various resources such as email, learning management systems, and other educational websites with a single login. With SSO, students and teachers have to enter their credentials once, and they can access multiple resources without re-entering their credentials. SSO also increases security in school environments by ensuring that each student and teacher has a unique set of credentials. This can prevent unauthorized access to resources and makes it easier to track and monitor the usage of resources.

In short, SSO is like a master key that opens all the doors of your online world, enabling you to get things done efficiently and securely.
