What is Single Sign-On?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a technology used by companies to provide a method for their employees (or other users) to log in to one application and then be automatically signed in to every other application the company uses, regardless of the platform, technology, and domain.

For example, Google uses a Single Sign-On service to allow its customers to sign in to all the different products provided by Google: Search, YouTube, Gmail, etc. When you visit Google as a user and log in, you are logging in to their central SSO service, called a "Provider", which then automatically signs you into the product you want to access when you visit that product.
