What is SAML?
SAML stands for Security Assertion Markup Language and is a protocol for exchanging authentication and authorization data between separate systems. It is used to provide Single Sign-on (SSO) and Single Logout (SLO) between security domains.
Gigya supports SAML 2.0, an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens that contain assertions, which are used to pass data between a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) and a Service Provider (SP). The SAML specification was developed and is maintained by the Security Services Technical Committee of OASIS.
Depending upon your required implementation, please see one or both of the following links.
