About SAML & OpenID Connect

In Access Manager, the identity providers that are based on SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect protocols are supported.


SAML 2.0 (Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0) is an authentication protocol that works by exchanging XML documents between the authentication server and the application. It was designed to work on top of the Web. XML signatures and encryption are used to verify requests and responses.

OpenID Connect

OpenID Connect is a fully-developed authentication and authorization protocol that is an extension of the OAuth 2.0 authorization framework. OpenID Connect was designed to work with the Web. It is perfectly suited for HTML5/JavaScript applications and is easy to implement on the client side. OpenID Connect uses the JSON Web Token (JWT) set of standards that define ways to digitally sign and encrypt data in a compact and web-friendly way.
