    Authentication Solution: "Authentication Module" -vs- "Identity Provider"

      My company is using Qlik as an embedded solution using the Mashup API.

       

      The following link is a PDF with information about authentication solutions.

      https://help.qlik.com/sense/2.1/en-US/pdf/Plan%20Qlik%20Sense%20deployments.pdf

       

      • pp 98-99 refer to an "authentication module" in the Ticket Solution.
      • pp 99-100 refer to an "identity provider" in the Session Solution.

       

      What's the difference between these two?  I can't find an explanation in the document.

       

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Michael
