Single Sign-On (SSO) Implementation on Video Streaming Services
The Video Streaming Service (VSS) has been launched for about a year which provides a video on demand platform for HKU users to host and share their videos. All videos are stored in the VSS server which are open to public without any restrictions. However, there may be situations where this open access is not desirable and need to restrict the sharing to HKU users or a particular group of HKU users only.We are pleased to announce the introduction of an optional function, Single Sign-On (SSO), on the VSS. With SSO, users can apply access control on their videos to restrict access by an individual or a group of people with valid HKU Portal accounts. If users have already logged onto HKU Portal, they can view the videos without further login. As this is an optional function, videos not applying SSO will remain open for public access.
