| Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1
The Oracle ILOM Single Sign-On (SSO) service is an Oracle-proprietary protocol and feature that allows authenticated web users to launch the Remote Keyboard, video, mouse, storage (KVMS) application without having to re-enter a password, even though the KVMS application is running on a different system. For a blade chassis, it also allows an authenticated chassis monitoring module (CMM) user to navigate to a blade SP in the chassis without having to re-enter her or his user password.
The SSO protocol uses one-time-use credentials that are sent over the network between Oracle ILOM and the Oracle ILOM Remote Console and CLI Storage Redirection applications. The communication of these credentials is over a private, encrypted channel. These credentials are then used internally by the Oracle ILOM Remote Console and CLI Storage Redirection applications to authenticate the session. For a blade system, the SSO one-time-use credentials are sent between the blade SP and the CMM over a private VLAN.
The SSO feature can be disabled if the convenience of single sign-on is not required. For more information about enabling or disabling the SSO service, see the Oracle ILOM 3.1 Configuration and Maintenance Guide.
