SSP7 supports various ways of authentication.
Most commonly used in the Kerberos single sign on possibility. 'Next to that, SSP7 also provides LDAP authentication, Internal account management and authentication against external back-end systems. After a successful authentication, SSP7 will grant access roles to the logged in person. This may be done through manual role assignment in SSP7 or by reading profiles from external sources.
Depending on the login, other stylesheets may be used. This so-called multi-tenancy allows to provide users from different organizations to see other color schemes and logo's in the portal.
If you want to configure multi-tenancy, please contact a SMT-X consultant.
