Within the first decade of the 21st century, internet users worldwide increased from 350 million to more than 2 billion and mobile phone subscribers, from 750 million to 5 billion. And today, it’s at the 6billion mark with the world’s population estimated around 7 billion.

Most mobile devices out there, even the cheapest ones, are possibly used to access the internet. This creates a huge challenge in application to application interactions or in inter domain interactions. The question now is whether we can bring the normal web federated SSO user experience into the mobile world?

In this webinar, Prabath Siriwardena, WSO2 Director of Security, will explore landscapes in mobile SSO. The session will cover

  • Challenges in mobile SSO
  • OAuth, OpenID Connect, SAML
  • Browser-based SSO vs Native SSO
  • If you are a developer or architect trying to bring the normal web federated SSO user experience into the mobile world then this session is for you.
