What is SAML 2.0 ?
Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0) is a version of the SAML standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between security domains.
When users are authenticated at one site that participates in a single sign-on (SSO) configuration, they are automatically authenticated at other sites in the SSO configuration and do not need to log in separately.
One who generated the SAML token is called the Identity Provider OR Asserting Party OR Source Site.
SAML can be classified into two types depending on the manner in which requests are obtained.
- IDP initiated ( Identity Provider Initiated )
- SP initiated ( Service Provider initiated )
