  • Publication number: 20190281037
    Abstract: An apparatus is configured for coupling through a network to an external authentication system that allows use of an external service and to a service providing system that provides a given service through authentication performed by the external authentication system. The apparatus includes a web browser and a storing unit. The web browser is configured to transmit to the external authentication system authentication credentials to be used for the authentication performed by the external authentication system to request the authentication to be performed by the external authentication system. The web browser is configured to cause the storing unit to store a first cookie indicating that the authentication credentials have been authenticated. After the storing unit stores a second cookie indicating that the use of the given service has been allowed, the web browser is configured to cause the storing unit to delete the first cookie.

  • Patent number: 10182169
    Abstract: A Web browser is installed on an information processing apparatus coupled to a server apparatus that provides a single-page application. The Web browser obtains a Web content for displaying pages in the single-page application. The Web content includes screen definition information in which content elements are defined for respective page identification information items and includes configuration information in which a configuration between the page identification information items is defined. The Web browser creates, based on the configuration information, component information including, for the respective page identification information items, page components of the pages. When an operation for a page transition is performed, the Web browser displays a page after the transition based on a content element corresponding to a page identification information item of the page after the transition and on a page component corresponding to the page identification information item of the page after the transition.
