A solution to allow user login multiple credentials at same time

This invention solves the problem that user can't use the multiple credentials(username and password) to login a web application at the same time for managing the different resources. Usually an application will issue one username and password for each user, but if the credentials are not managed and issued by this application, for example all users are created at credential servers or operating systems instead of this application. This application will synchronize authentication information from different credential servers or different operating systems, in this case one user might have multiple credential. For example, one user has one credential at each operating system.

The core idea of this invention is that user can login multiple credentials at same time to manage resources, needn't to log out then login again and again to switch credentials.

The advantages of this invention are:
1. User can login all credential he/she has, and keep all of them at login status
2. Can manage resources across different credentials

3. This application can automatically enable or disable credentials when handle different resources(they are belong to different credentials)

How this invention works?

After an user login successfully, current web application allows one credential is stored in one session, . If user has more credentials, he/she has to log out then login the new user to enable them. In this invention, multiple credentials will be shared in one session, user can continue login, because all of these credentials are stored in one session
