User's Guide: Azure Active Directory Authentication

Setting Azure Active Directory Authentication

This feature allows users to configure accounts such that they can authenticate using the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) of an Azure tenant. For this authentication, the OpenID connect over OAuth 2.0 (OAuth) is used as the authentication protocol.


Users will need to sign up for Fortanix CCM or must be invited to a Fortanix CCM account before they can log in to that account using Azure AD.

Enable Azure AD

To add Azure AD as the OAuth identity provider:

  1. Go to the Settings AzureAD4.png  page in Fortanix Confidential Computing Manager and click the Authentication tab. CCMUserguide66.png Figure 1: Settings page
  2. In the Authentication page, enable the toggle for Azure AD to allow users to log in to the Fortanix CCM account and authenticate using single sign-on with Azure AD credentials. Click SAVE to save this setting. CCMUserguide67.png Figure 2: Enable Azure AD
  3. When the toggle is disabled, users will not be able to authenticate using Azure AD credentials. They can still authenticate to their Fortanix CCM account using the email address and password provided during user signup.
  4. Now when the user logs in to Fortanix CCM in the next session, there will be two options shown on the login screen:
    1. Log in with Azure AD (with SSO)
    2. Log in with Password (Without SSO)
