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 loging in to 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.
The user needs to fill in all the required fields, marked with an *. We encourage Intel cloud services users to provide optional information, such as the day and month of birth, gender, and country of residence. Intel uses this profile information only to provide personalized consumer services. However, users can opt to leave the Optional fields blank. They can always come back and update their personal information at the later time.
After users enter their personal information, they will need to enter a text-recognition challenge (CAPTCHA), which helps to ensure they are human beings and not robots. If they have trouble with one CAPTCHA, they can get a different one by clicking the refresh button next to the CAPTCHA text.
Click the Continue button to create the Intel Identity Services account.
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 Intel Cloud Service Platform Identity Dashboard Tutorial for more details.
