Google SAML SSO integration allows secure Single Sign-On access to your Google Account & other specific On-Premise / Cloud apps using a single set of existing login credentials.
Google SSO solution by miniOrange provides an option to integrate with multiple third-party Identity Providers which supports SAML, OAuth sort of standard protocols. IDP here means (Okta, Auth0, Ping, Onelogin, etc) or Active Directory (AD) where your existing users are managed. Once your Google SSO login is enabled with your IDP / Directory successfully, your employees or end users will be able to login into their Google account and other integrated applications with the use of existing username password.They won't need to create or manage credentials differently to operate Google account or any other app account. Given below is the setup guide to configure SAML SSO for your Google Apps (Workspace) account.
IP based access control in cloud computing, allows you to enforce an IP restriction policy that enables the IT admin to restrict user access to business data in G Suite only through one or more specified IP addresses. This ensures that no business data is accessed in an unsecured, public, or unregistered IP address. Preventing data theft is a big concern, so IP restriction for G Suite helps you out with that concern.
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.
Get IdP Metadata Details to upload to Google Apps:
If you want some of your users to sign in to Google directly, you can move those users into an organizational unit (OU) or group. Then, manage SSO settings for the OU or group so that those users are authenticated by Google rather than using your third-party IdP. Follow the following steps:
Note: Get started is only available if you’ve already enabled your third-party SSO profile.
Note: If the SSO profile assignment for an OU or group differs from your domain-wide profile assignment, an
override warning appears when you select that OU or group. You can’t assign the SSO profile on a per-user
basis. The Users view let you check the setting for a specific user.
If you want to turn off the third-party authentication for all your users without changing the SSO profile assignment for OUs or groups, you can disable the third-party SSO profile:

miniOrange integrates with various external user sources such as directories, identity providers, and etc.
A. Restricting access to Google Apps with IP Blocking
You can use adaptive authentication with Google Apps 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 Google Apps.
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.|
