Gluu Server offers a variety of features as follows:

  • Single Sign-On (SSO): Gluu Identity & Access Management Server provides secure single sign-on via OpenID Connect, OAuth2, SAML, and CAS for both Web and mobile applications.
  • Two-Factor Authentication: Gluu Authentication software supports a large number of 2FA mechanisms to increase the security of sensitive applications. In combination with the already integrated Casa, one can set up a self-service portal, manage tokens, and more. Apart from this, Gluu Server comes with an authentication flow to very easily connect privacyIDEA.
  • Social-Login and external authentication: With the help of the Gluu portal, users can register and log in via Google, Facebook, GitHub, etc. This solution is very versatile and can even be used for external authentication via enterprise SSO, such as ADFS.
  • Access management: with Gluu Server, access to various resources can be centrally managed.
  • Identity management APIs: Gluu Server uses standard compliant SCIMv2 APIs for provisioning and de-provisioning of users. Thus, Gluu Server can be seamlessly connected to identity management systems. Apart from this, users can also be conveniently managed directly in Gluu via an administration interface.

The Operations of the Gluu Server can also be extended with additional optional Gluu applications:


  • Super Gluu: Super Gluu is a mobile app for two-factor authentication where the second factor is sent to a mobile device as a push notification.
  • Casa: In this users can set up and maintain their second factor, can link accounts, and edit their data. It is the 2FA management and self-service portal by Gluu.
