Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)
What is SAML?
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) allows users to access multiple web applications after entering a single set of login credentials.
Why is SAML important?
SAML is an open standard which allows one service to share security credentials with another. It’s commonly used as a way to enable SSO (Single Sign-On). It makes it easier for users to access multiple applications or systems with a single credential and optimizes their workflow. This also adds security by reducing the number of credentials that need to be managed and transferred across services.
