Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of the invention are disclosed for establishing single identity/single-sign on (SSO) on a cloud computing platform. In an embodiment, a user is validated to the cloud computing platform, and identifies a domain. After establishing that the user has control of the domain, the cloud computing platform configures a directory service for the domain. The user may then use the directory service on the cloud computing platform to log in to his or her computer, as well as software services hosted on the cloud computing platform.

Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent l'établissement d'une identité unique/signature unique (SSO) dans une plateforme infonuagique. Dans un mode de réalisation, un utilisateur est validé pour la plateforme infonuagique et identifie un domaine. Après qu'il a été établi que l'utilisateur a le contrôle du domaine, la plateforme infonuagique configure un service de répertoire pour le domaine. L'utilisateur peut ensuite utiliser le service de répertoire dans la plateforme infonuagique pour se connecter à son ordinateur, et utiliser des services logiciels hébergés dans la plateforme infonuagique.
