Keycloak is an open source single sign on (SSO) identity and access management provider which first came into production in september 2014. It is used for user registration and includes features such as SSO, two-factor authentication, LDAP integration, Kerberos broker and multitenancy with per-realm customizable skin. Therefore, it is a flexible tool. Keycloak is configured with CLI commands or with the user interface called the Admin Console which centrally manages all aspects of the Keycloak server.
Keycloak enables you to authenticate users with existing OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0 Identity Providers.
It also includes several options such as enabling or disabling SSL certificate requirements, different user groups can be created per realm and you can define policies for fine grained authorization services.
