Custom authentication

Custom authentication has been deprecated and will be removed in the near future. If you are using custom authentication to access
Cylance Endpoint Security
, you can migrate your external IDP to an authenticator and use enhanced authentication to access the
console. For more information on enhanced authentication, see Enhanced authentication sign in. To see a walkthrough on how to configure your external IDP as an authenticator, see Migrate external IDPs from Legacy Custom Authentication to the Modern Authenticator Framework.
Use external identity providers (IdP) to login to the management console. This requires configuring settings with your IdP to obtain an X.509 certificate and a URL for verifying your IdP login. Custom authentication works with
SAML 2.0. This feature has been confirmed to work with OneLogin, Okta, Microsoft Azure, and PingOne. This feature also provides a custom setting and should work with other IdP's who follow
SAML 2.0.
Examples of using custom authentication, see the following articles.
Custom authentication does not support Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).
