Authentication and Authorization

Luna Control Center Identity Services offer customers self-service authentication choices to securely control, integrate and automate the workflow to grant or deny access to Luna Control Center resources.

The number of sites and applications managed by every company is rapidly increasing and the ability to control, report and manage every one of them is becoming more challenging over time. It becomes critical to control websites and applications in real time, make decisions and react quickly to reduce the time to market. Consequently, management tools need to be easy to access and securely managed.

Authentication and Authorization

Luna Control Center is the integrated interface to Akamai next generation CDN services, products and platform, leveraging Akamai expertise and best practices through UI. Identity Services embeds industry best practices to protect and secure access to Luna, while granting the right level of access and management privileges to different user profiles. The complete identity and access management solution set is designed to integrate with customized internal network security policies in a cloud environment. The solution includes:

  • IP Restricted Login (IPRL): customers may define a range of whitelisted IP addresses. Only requests coming from these addresses are granted access.
  • Two Factor Authentication: customers may add, in addition to username and password, a second factor of authentication with a Time-based One Time Password (TOTP) solution to validate the user identity.
  • SAML support: customers may federate Luna Control Center users into the existing cloud-based Single Sign On and multifactor authentication policies.
  • User Management and/or User Management APIs allow users to manage access rights and privileges based on users’ roles.
