SAML Protocols

SAML Protocols#

SAML defines a number of request/response protocols that allow Service Providers to:
  • Request from a SAML authority one or more assertions (includes a direct request of the desired assertions, as well as querying for assertions that meet particular criteria)
  • Request that an Identity Provider (IDP) authenticate a principal and return the corresponding assertion
  • Request that a name identifier be registered
  • Request that the use of an identifier be terminated
  • Retrieve a protocol message that has been requested by means of an artifact
  • Request a near-simultaneous logout of a collection of related sessions ("Single Logout Profile")
  • Request a name identifier mapping
