Welcome to Cloud Identity, a suite of easy-to-use components for identity management. Quickly enable SSO authentication in web-based applications using SAML and OpenID Connect.

Included Libraries

The .NET Edition includes libraries (.dll files) which are supported in different environments. The following libraries are present in the lib directory after installation:

  • lib\net40\nsoftware.CloudIdentity.dll is designed for use in .NET Framework 4.0 and up. This library maintains a familiar API in line with previous versions of the product.

  • lib\net6.0\nsoftware.CloudIdentity.dll is designed for use in .NET 6 and up. The .NET 6 library provides cross-platform support while maintaining the same API as the .NET Framework version of the library.

  • lib\netstandard2.0\nsoftware.CloudIdentity.dll is designed for use in .NET Standard 2.0 and up. The .NET Standard library provides cross-platform support for legacy projects.
