Single Sign On is the feature that enable a successful User Authentication to provide access to multiple sites or resources.

For eg: the username/password provided in a login page if successfully validated, would be used to login to remote database server, access network printers etc. Here the delegation of user credentials is done.

In SharePoint the portal application can get data from different backend systems using the SSO credential.

Single Sign On(SSO) is also known as Enterprise Single Sign On (ESSO)

With the help of SSO, A user can use the same ID and Password to logon

to multiple applications with in an enterprise.

According to the risk of the enterprise, SSO handles different

types of encryption to encrypt the password to a secured form.

Not only for sharepoint , it can be used for all kind of websites.
