PingOne SSO

The following guide takes you thorough the process of enabling passwordless biometric authentication on PingOne SSO to provide enhanced password less authentication experience to applications

Following is a short video to demonstrate Keyless authentication experience to PingOne Enduser Portal.

In our next short video we'll go over the process of enrolling a PingOne user to Keyless

Our final short clip is to demonstrate the initial login with Keyless to PingOne where a linked account is created on PingOne. This is a one time only step: once the accounts are linked authentication process works as shown on our very first clip

Authentication: Configure External IdP

Logon to PingOne Admin console for your environment.

  • Create an External Identity Provider

  • Select the Custom option to create an OpenID Connect IdP

  • Fill in IdP profile details

  • Provide OIDC Connection details

    • Client ID: Provided by Keyless Account team

    • Client Secret:

    • OIDC Discover Document URI: Provided by

    • Fill in OIDC scopes: openid profile email

    • Make a note of the callback URL generated by PingOne: This will be required by Keyless Account team

  • Provide OIDC attribute mapping between PingOne & Keyless IdP

    • Note that Keyless IDP will return username in preferred_username attribute on teh incoming claim

  • Enable Exernal IdP just created

  • Summary of Configuration on Keyless IdP

  • Update Authentication Policy to include Keyless External IdP

    • Under Experiences-> Authenticaiton Policies -> Single Factor Add Keyless External IDP as a IdP to be presented on Login

This completes configuration of Keyless as External Identity Provider

This completes the OIDC Service Provider/ Keyless Enrolment end of configuration.
