Chapter 8. Setting the authentication method
Depending on how you use Red Hat Insights, you must use one of two authentication methods:
Certificate-based authentication (CERT)
The default authentication method is through certificates. Certificates are generated when you register a system with Red Hat Subscription Manager (RHSM) or when your system is managed by Red Hat Satellite system management. No additional configuration changes are required.
SSO credential-based Authentication (BASIC)
The alternative authentication method is through SSO credentials. A valid Red Hat SSO credential is created when you have a valid Red Hat Customer Portal user name. To use SSO credentials with Red Hat Insights, you must configure your system to use basic authentication.
