Title: APPLICATION AUTHENTICATION CHECKING SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method for authentication checking comprises receiving an authentication verification request for accessing an application. The authentication verification request includes a user identification, a device identification and an application identification. A validity of the authentication verification request is determined based on at least a last known authentication information, and a first subset of an application policy rule-set specific to the user identification and the device identification, if the application policy rule-set permits cross-application authentication; otherwise the validity is determined based on at least a second subset of the application policy rule-set specific to the user identification, the device identification and the application identification. Access to the application is enabled if the validity of the authentication verification request is true; otherwise a new authentication is requested.
