Security & Authentication

You can configure Humio to run with or without user authentication.

Authentication disabled by default
In order to make first-time set up easy for new users, Humio defaults to running without authentication at all. This is not recommended for production environments.

Users are authenticated (logged in) using one of the above integrations, but authorization and permissions are handled in Humio.

Humios cloud offering has a per customer configurable authentication mechanism: ‘Enterprise Login’. For a given email domain a SAML compatible Identity Provider can be configured. Allowing users to login with their company email.
Currently this needs to configured by our support team together with interested customers. An upcoming release will support more protocols and provide a UI.
