stax2aws Solution Overview

About stax2aws

stax2aws is standards-based. It is built to comply with open authentication standards such as OAuth 2.0 (RFC6749, RFC-8252, and RFC-8268).

For organizations using Single Sign-On (SSO) with Stax, stax2aws fully supports complex authentication flows, including any additional factors of authentication. By using SSO, credential sprawl can be greatly reduced.

The stax2aws user experience is familiar, it uses the same browser-based login experience that the Stax Console uses. The browser-based "passive" authentication flow means stax2aws never sees passwords, it simply receives a temporary authentication token.
