Single Sign On

Single Sign On or Same Sign On?

Just thinking aloud ... one of the things Oracle has introduced is 'userid consistency' across their applications. This is called 'SSO'.

I thought that SSO stood for 'Single Sign On', and the functionality is 'sign on once and use all applications'.

I am finding it actually means 'Same Sign On' and the functionality is 'log in to each of the the different applications one at time, using the same userid & password'. However, signing out does efficiently log me off all applications.
