Below is a brief about my understanding of the SAML Advantages, Components and Workflow.

Security Assertion Markup Language abbreviated and commonly known as SAML is a system component that is used to authenticate users in Single Sign On (SSO) enabled systems.

Advantages of SAML,

  • A single corporate directory listing all the users

  • Reduced numbers of screen to enter credentials

  • Reduced efforts to maintain multiple passwords

  • Reduce support activities related to password resets

SAML Components,

SAML mainly has three components involved as listed below,

  • End User – a person or entity who will be using an application

  • Application – an application for which the user needs an access,

  • Corporate directory – a common corporate directory containing all the organizations employees needing access to the application in discussion.


How it works,

SAML Workflow
