Authentication is 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.

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.
