Many organizations often have existing user data-stores that hold information about users and their credentials. Typically, enterprise applications would have different user bases and the underlying user account management systems might be different for each of the applications.
To handle the complexity associated with multiple user data-stores, each application layer will have to have a suitable authentication module that handles authentication & authorization with the underlying user account management systems. This results in the proliferation of authentication modules for each application and it gets closely tied with application life-cycle.
In this session, you'll learn how Keycloak/RHSSO provides a unified way to federate different user account systems. More specifically, you'll see how effectively the user accounts from an external LDAP server and a MySQL database (that holds user accounts) could be federated with the help of Keycloak/RHSSO.
