Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based open standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider.
SAML operates by sharing user information between the identity and service provider, including logins, authentication states, IDs, and other necessary features.
As a result, the authentication procedure is simplified and secure because the user only needs to log in with a single set of authentication credentials.
As a result, when a user attempts to access a website, the identity provider sends the SAML authentication to the service provider, who then authorizes the user access.
SAML is used in SSO applications to provide user identification information from an identity provider to a service provider.
End users that are logged in to a primary service provider can utilize SAML to log in to another service provider.
An enterprise user enrolled in their primary SSO work network, for example, can utilize SAML to connect to a third-party cloud application provider rather than having to register into the cloud application separately.
SAML simplifies login for users, enhances security, and decreases the cost and complexity of service providers. Users can use SAML to securely reuse their existing credentials to access a variety of applications.
It is the SAML process is visible to internet browser redirects. However, they don't have to manage or configure everything. Since SAML is done in the background, users will benefit from the simplified login experience it offers.
Service providers provide the apps that users would like to use. They set up apps to make trust and establish SAML connections with several identity service providers.
