Description

  A user who realizes a user authentication information linkage service via a network that allows user authentication information (for example, password) of an application to be reflected in the user authentication information of the linked application when the user changes the user authentication information The present invention relates to an authentication information cooperation system, an information processing apparatus, a user authentication information cooperation method, a cooperation application setting system, a cooperation application setting method, a program, and a storage medium.

  With the recent development of the Internet environment, an environment where anyone can easily send and receive e-mails using the Internet and browse the WWW (World Wide Web) in various places such as homes, companies, and outdoors has been established. ing.

  In addition, enterprises are working to speed up and improve the efficiency of operations through intranets and extranets, and construct and operate client / server and three-tier business systems using networks.

  In such systems and services, when using these, user authentication information such as a user-specific ID and password is input, and the input information is used to determine whether or not the user is qualified. Is usually done.

  In order to use various systems and services (hereinafter collectively referred to as systems), the user needs to store a plurality of sets of user authentication information such as IDs and passwords corresponding to the respective systems.

  Conventionally, single sign-on (hereinafter referred to as SSO) technology that enables login to multiple applications with a single set of user IDs and passwords as a means to simplify user operations for multiple systems It was common to use.

Furthermore, as a means to realize authentication control for improving security in an environment using a plurality of systems, input identification information input by a user and unique identification information recorded on a recording medium such as a magnetic card or an IC card And authentication information corresponding to a plurality of systems is set as input information for authentication processing in accordance with the comparison result (see, for example, Patent Document 1).
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2001-22702

  However, in the SSO, which is the conventional technology described above, an authentication server for performing user authentication must be constructed separately from each application, which is suitable for cooperation between large-scale applications. There was not much merit in application cooperation. In addition, SSO is a mechanism that does not require authentication of another application based on information authenticated by an application, and it has not been possible to realize cooperation of application user authentication information.

  Further, in Patent Document 1, since it is necessary to record user authentication information corresponding to a plurality of applications on a recording medium such as a magnetic card or an IC card, and to always pass through an authentication application, each application has authentication information. It was a trigger for change, and it was not possible to link authentication information changes in both directions. Also, the same user authentication information in the same application (for example, when the administrator user and the general user have duplicate user authentication information) cannot be set.

  The present invention has been made paying attention to the above points. When the user changes the user authentication information of the application, the application in which the user authentication information is linked by the linked application information set for each user. It is intended to provide a user authentication information linkage system, an information processing apparatus, a user authentication information linkage method, a linked application setting system, a linked application setting method, a program, and a storage medium that can be reflected in user authentication information .

  In order to solve the above-described problems, the present invention has the following configuration.

On the application server that accepts changes in user authentication information such as passwords from the user, a screen control unit that displays a screen that allows the user to set user authentication information such as a user ID and password, and accepts changes in user authentication information, and a user A user authentication information linkage module comprising a user authentication information linkage processing unit for requesting a change of user authentication information to a linkage application associated with the user ID set by the user and linked to the user ID set by the user;
In the application server that accepts the settings of the linked application from the user, a screen that displays a screen for setting the user ID and the linked application to the user and accepts the setting of the linked application, and the linkage associated with the user ID specified by the user A linked application setting module comprising a linked application setting processing unit for setting an application;

  (3) A user authentication information linkage method implemented by a configuration in which computers are connected to each other via a network, and accepts setting and changing of user authentication information including a password from the user's client computer via the network. A user authentication information linkage method characterized in that, in an application server, setting and changing user authentication information can be set and changed in cooperation with user authentication information of another application server.

  (4) A program for causing an information processing apparatus as a server to link user authentication information connected to each other via a network to function as a server, including a password or the like from the user's client computer via the network An application server that accepts authentication information settings and changes has a user authentication information linkage module that can set and change user authentication information settings and changes as user authentication information of other application servers. A program for functioning as a characteristic information processing apparatus.

  (5) A storage medium storing the program according to (4) so as to be readable by a computer.

  (6) A cooperative application setting system in which computers are connected to each other via a network, wherein a user can set a cooperative application of user authentication information from a client computer via the network Application configuration system.

  (10) A storage medium storing the program according to (9) so as to be readable by a computer.

  Unlike the methods listed as problems in the prior art, when sharing user authentication information such as passwords for each application, it is not necessary to set user authentication information for each application individually, and it is necessary to construct an SSO environment. Nor.

  In addition, the user authentication information changed using one application can be reflected in the user authentication information of the linked application, saving the user from having to change the user authentication information for multiple applications. Can do. Similarly, when there are a plurality of identical user authentication information in the same application, it is possible to save time and effort.

  Furthermore, the user authentication information of an application that is not frequently used, such as an old version application at the time of version migration, is also changed unconsciously, improving security.
