Application Developers (SAML2)¶
One of the methods that can be used to authenticate users in Feide is the SAML 2.0 protocol.
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 is a standard for federated logins and identity management. In Feide, the standard is used for authenticating users and during logout.
The SAML 2.0 standard is large and covers many different use cases. To simplify interoperabilith, several profiles describing usage of the standard have been defined. Feide supports the following profile:
A detailed description of how Feide uses SAML 2.0 can be found in the Feide Technical Guide.
