Intel® Cloud Services Platform beta is a collection of identity-based services. To use these cloud services to the fullest, affiliated applications are required to integrate with Intel® Identity Services and authenticate their end users. End users are authenticated by logging into the application either with their Intel Identity Services account or one of the supported social identities: Facebook, Google+, or Yahoo.
This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating Intel accounts for end-users.
In the typical scenario, when users log in to a cloud services application for the first time, they are presented with the Intel Identity Services screen:
Users may log in with their existing Intel account by typing their usernames and passwords in the Sign In area.
New users need to click Create a New Account, just below the Log In button to set up a new account. They will then see the next screen.
Once you create the account, please click the [Edit Profile] button and add profile information. This includes information such as name, address, maritial status, etc. All this information is totally optional and the end use has complete control over it.
Alternatively, users may choose to log in with their existing social identity logins by clicking one of the supported provider icons:
A Login page from the selected identity provider will display. For example, if users choose to login with their Google Identity, the following page will be shown:
Once the social identity account is successfully authenticated, the user will be asked to grant Intel Identity Services access to the basic social identity profile.
Intel Identity Services will use this information to create an Intel account for the user.
If users want their social identity profile stored and not be asked this question again, they can select Remember this approval.
User can access their profiles at any time by logging in to the Intel identity Services Dashboard. Refer to Registering Apps on Developer Portal for more details.
