IBM Cloud App ID is introducing new capabilities to give you the option to strengthen the security of each authentication: multi-factor authentication (MFA) and advanced password policies.
With the new capabilities in IBM Cloud App ID, you can now leverage any custom identity provider or sign-in method and authenticate apps in addition to users.
Were excited to announce that IBM Cloud App ID just launched a new Lite plan as part of the IBM Cloud Lite account. As part of the Lite plan, you will be able to try out all of App ID's capabilities.
If you were using Certificate Manager in Beta, we have good news—you can continue to use your existing instances as is. There is no required migration, and you can continue to use Certificate Manager for free. For new users, you can go ahead and create a new instance and use for free also.
New capabilities have recently been launched in IBM Cloud App ID so you can give users more ways to sign up and sign in and enrich user profiles further.
Even the most successful or genius apps can fail if there are issues with availability. While development teams often engineer for availability, with lots of redundancy, health checks, and load balancing, sometimes outages occur because of simple human errors. One common error is that teams fail to renew SSL/TLS certificates on time.
Use IBM Cloud Certificate Manager with IBM Cloud Container Service to deploy custom domain TLS Certificates
We are excited to announce that IBM Cloud Container Service is now integrated with IBM Cloud Certificate Manager! This means that you can easily and securely deploy custom domain TLS certificates from Certificate Manager to your Kubernetes Cluster.
We are excited to announce IBM Cloud Certificate Manager in Beta, a service to help you manage SSL/TLS certificates for your apps and services! Certificate Manager provides you with a secure repository to store your certificates and their associated private keys, and gives you tools to manage the life-cycle of certificates, so that you can continually secure your apps with HTTPS.
We are excited to launch our newest App ID feature, Cloud Directory, that makes it easy for you to add user sign-up and sign-in to your mobile and web apps. Cloud Directory provides you with a user registry for your apps that scales with your user base, and includes simple ways to authenticate users to your apps using email and password. Cloud Directory has pre-built functionality for enhanced security and self service, like email verification, and password reset.
