Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an authentication infrastructure that is built, hosted and managed by a third-party service provider. IDaaS can be thought of as single sign-on (SSO) for the cloud.  

An IDaaS for the enterprise is typically purchased as a subscription-based managed service.  A cloud service provider may also host applications for a fee and provide subscribers with role-based access to specific applications or even entire virtualized desktops through a secure portal.
