Auth0 SAML integration

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security used when logging into websites or apps. Individuals are authenticated through more than one required security and validation procedure that only you know or have access to.

Arculix by SecureAuth integrates with Auth0™ via its SAML solution and provides a single sign-on (SSO) MFA to ensure the convenience of cloud SSO without its potential security risks.

Auth0 is built for developers and is a trusted portal. Use this guide to configure Arculix to add MFA to the Auth0 portal to provide secure login for developers.

Prerequisites

  • Arculix account with a configured Identity Provider and LDAP Agent.

    For more information, see the Arculix LDAP Agent deployment guide.
