Amazon Web Service (AWS) Single Sign-on (SSO) service is a cloud based Single Sign-On (SSO) solution which provides a simplified and secure access for users/groups to Amazon web services and full access to multiple cloud Applications along with AWS management console with one set of login credentials. Specifically, it helps you manage SSO access and user permissions across all your AWS accounts as well as custom applications that support Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0.
miniOrange provides secure access to AWS SSO via the miniOrange Identity Provider (IDP) wherein users and groups can be authenticated, thus providing seamless access to your AWS resources.
With miniOrange AWS SSO, you can:

In this flow, a person tries to login to the Serivce Provider (AWS account) directly. The request is redirected to the Identity Provider for authentication. On sucessfull authentication from the Identity provider, the person is given access to the application (AWS account).
In this flow, a person logs in to the Identity Provider using his credentials. Now the person can access any of the configured Service Providers (AWS account, etc.) through the Identity Provider Dashboard without having to enter the credentials agian.
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
You will need the following pre requisites to setup SSO for AWS organization:
1. AWS organization admin account.
2. Set up AWS organization service.
3. Download the signed certificate from the AWS console or organization.

|Send Configured Attributes||If you enable this option, then only the attributes configured below will be sent in attributes at the time of login|
Refer our guide to setup LDAPS on windows server.
miniOrange integrates with various external user sources such as directories, identity providers, and etc.
A. Restricting access to AWS with IP Blocking
You can use adaptive authentication with AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) to improve the security and functionality of Single Sign-On. You can allow a IP Address in certain range for SSO or you can deny it based your requirements and you can also challenge the user to verify his authenticity. Adaptive authentication manages the user authentication bases on different factors such as Device ID, Location, Time of Access, IP Address and many more.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with IP Blocking in following way:
|Allow||Allow user to authenticate and use services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|Challenge||Challenge users with one of the three methods mentioned below for verifying user authenticity.|
|Deny||Deny user authentications and access to services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|User second Factor||The User needs to authenticate using the second factor he has opted or assigned for such as
|KBA (Knowledge-based authentication)||The System will ask user for 2 of 3 questions he has configured in his Self Service Console. Only after right answer to both questions user is allowed to proceed further.|
|OTP over Alternate Email||User will receive a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Console. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.|
B. Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.
Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users will be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with Device Restriction in following way
C. Add Adaptive Authentication policy to AWS.
D.Notification and Alert Message.
This section handles the notifications and alerts related to Adaptive Authentication.It provides the following options :
|Challenge Completed and Device Registered||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user completes a challenge and registers a device.|
|Challenge Completed but Device Not Registered||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user completes a challenge but do not registers the device.|
|Challenge Failed||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user fails to complete the challenge.|
