Authentication TypeDetails
DefaultThis is the default authentication provided by the service provider.
Local AuthenticationThis is the authentication enabled in the Identity Server.
Federated AuthenticationThe Federated Authenticators are not within the Identity Server like local authenticators. These are external. Federated authentication is based on the Identity Provider that you added to the WSO2 Identity Server. In this case, the user is authenticated by checking the user details against the details specified in the identity provider.
Advanced ConfigurationAdvanced configurations enable you to add multiple steps in authentication. When multiple authentication steps exists, the user is authenticated based on each and every one of these steps. If only one step is added then the user is only authenticated based on the local and/or federated authenticators added. However, in the case of local and/or federated authenticators, the authentication happens based on any one of the available authenticators.
