// Salesforce - Developer - Security - Federated Authentication Basics:

Federated authentication is a form of authentication (commonly referred to as 
single sign-on or SSO) that allows the portability of identity information to 
multiple services without the need for redundant identity management in each 
service.  There are two main advantages to this type of authentication:

1. Users only need to remember one password to be able to gain access to many 
   resources.

2. Centralizes identity information, allows stronger passwords, and can provide 
   a single location to disable access
