Title: EDGE PROTECTION FOR INTERNAL IDENTITY PROVIDERS
Abstract:
Systems and methods for edge protection for internal identity providers are provided. A first claimed embodiment of the present disclosure involves a method for edge protection for internal identity providers. The method includes receiving a service authentication request at a virtual private networking (VPN) appliance on an edge of a secure network. A client device external to the secure network can send the service authentication request. The VPN appliance can then send a synthetic service authentication request to an identity provider in the secure network. This synthetic service authentication request can be based on the service authentication request. The VPN can then receive an authenticated credential from the identity provider. The authenticated credential is responsive to the synthetic service authentication request. The VPN appliance can then send the authenticated credential from the VPN appliance to the client device.
