SAML 2.0

Security Assertion Markup Language is an XML-based, open-standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorization data between security domains: an Identity Provider (IdP) and a Service Provider (SP). SAML 2.0 enables web-based authentication and authorization scenarios including cross-domain single sign-on (SSO).

For Hub, SAML support lets you use a Hub service as the Identity Provider (IdP) for your web-based applications and as the authentication and authorization manager. When you configure Hub as the IdP for a service provider, your users can log into this service with their credentials in Hub or any other authentication module.

SAML support also enables single-sign-on. When a user logs into one of the services that is connected to Hub, they are logged into all connected services.

General Configuration

To use Hub as SAML IdP for your web-service, you need to perform three steps:

  1. Create, upload, and set up SSL Key to encrypt the connection between Hub and the service providers.
  2. Enable SAML for your service and provide parameters of Hub as the IdP.
  3. Register Service Provider in Hub.
