Federated Authentication Service

Citrix allows organizations to standardize on a non-Active Directory based Identity Providers (IdP), like Okta. However, Windows-based desktops and apps require an Active Directory account for authentication. The federated authentication service, integrated with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, utilizes virtual smartcards to provide single sign-on to Windows-based resources. This eliminates the need for users to authenticate multiple times when accessing Windows-based resources
