Use Secure LDAP to log into MacOS with Google credentials

Quick launch summary 

You can now use Secure LDAP on MacOS devices. Once enabled, users can log in to MacOS devices with their Google Workspace or Cloud Identity login credentials. 

This can help simplify access management by using a single directory—the Workspace identity and access management (IAM) platform—to manage access to MacOS devices. In turn, this can help improve security by providing a single place to set up identity and access policies, and reduce your dependency on legacy identity infrastructure.
