Welcome to the Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about Single Sign-On (SSO) with Cisco WebEx Meetings Server (Cisco WMS), Internet Reverse Proxy (IRP), and Enterprise License Manager (ELM) solutions.
SSO standards such as Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 provide secure mechanisms for passing credentials and related information between different websites that have their own authorization and authentication systems. SSO enables simplified user authentication and management.
IRP provides public access, enabling users to host or attend meetings from the Internet and mobile devices. Although IRP is optional, Cisco encourages its use because it provides a better user experience for your mobile workforce.
Example question topics include:
SSO profiles and SAML 2.0 Identity providers (IdPs) supported in Cisco WMS
Basic configuration of IdPs
Interaction between IdPs and Cisco WMS
Difference between the cloud client implementation and Cisco WMS
Meeting access behavior in a split-horizon network topology with SSO
How to enable public access to Cisco WMS
Cisco WMS ELM operations
Cisco WMS ELM compared to other unified communications ELM or standalone ELM and compatibility/inoperability between them
