Useful tools for malware analysis

MojeID now speaks more languages: it has learned the SAML and OpenID Connect protocols

Since its establishment in 2010, the mojeID service was closely connected with the OpenID 2.0 authentication protocol.

However, OpenID 2.0 is not the only authentication protocol. I wrote in our blog (only in Czech) about several others, like the SAML protocol or OpenID Connect. Especially for the latter one, OpenID Connect, standardization of which was finished at the beginning of last year, analysts forecast a promising future. The good news is that mojeID is no longer “monolingual”, it is now able to communicate with service providers via the mentioned protocols.
