A Hybrid Model of Cross-Domain Authentication for Password Synchronization
Cross-domain authentication is a key technology used in distributed computing, however, it isn’t perfect. In this paper, a new type of hybrid cross-domain authentication model is proposed to make up its shortcoming in safety, scalability and password synchronization. In this model, advantages of Kerberos and SAML in cross-domain authentication process are combined, and it mixed password transport protocols is adopted to achieve password synchronization. Theoretical analysis shows it can enhance the security and scalability of cross-domain authentication, the efficiency of cross-domain authentication is also improved as the attainment of password synchronization.
