Oracle SSO authentication

The Vault works with Oracle Identity Management allowing enterprises to manage end-to-end lifecycles of users across all enterprise systems. The user lifecycle management process revolves around a single core concept of a person or identity. The account that is created for the identity on each enterprise system is personal and belongs to a specific identity.

This authentication method will be deprecated in the next released version.
