Kundo

Customised login (different options)

Updated

We have a number of customers who, for various reasons, want to limit access to such services as forums (Kundo Forum) or knowledge bases (Kundo Knowledge). In order to satisfy this requirement and give you the protection you need, we can enable login integration.

Each integration setup can be customised for you, but here are some examples:

  • IP blocking: Only allow visitors from certain IP addresses. The only thing we need from you is the IP addresses to be allowed.

  • A shared password: All visitors are asked for a password, and once the correct password has been entered, the visitor is granted free access to the forum or knowledge base. Useful in cases where the level of security does not need to be so high and it does not matter too much if an outside party accesses the information. The only thing we need from you is the password to be used.

  • Single Sign-On (SSO): Users log in on your site, and are automatically logged in with us when visiting. This can be set up either as an integration using Azure AD via OpenID Connect if you use that for user management, or as a special solution jointly developed by us and you.

    The latter requires us to be able to check the login status of a user with your systems somehow, and typically involves an IT project on your side. We recommend that you use JWT for this. Here is further technical information about how JWT works.
