Standard Authentication Provider in Ozeki 10
The Standard Authentication Provider is the easiest user authentication method since it is integrated in Ozeki 10. You can create, modify or delete users with Ozeki 10. Created users can access the software GUI. Try to login and one of the authentication provider will give you access rights if you are on the user list. This guide shows how to create a user in Ozeki 10.
Figure 1 demonstrates the workflow of the standard authentication provider. It shows what happens from typing the login details until the user has been provided access to Ozeki 10. The registered users are saved in Ozeki 10, so they can be easily compared with the hashed login screen input.
