SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML-based standard for securely exchanging authentication and authorization information between entities — specifically between identity providers, service providers, and users. Stormpath supports SAML login without any XML. You simply configure the appropriate language or framework-specific SDK and the Stormpath Admin Console. From there, your application can consume SAML assertions from any SAML IdP. By offloading the burden of user identity management, including authentication and authorization, to Stormpath, your team resources can remain focused on building the core functionality of your application.

In this presentation, Stormpath Head of Product Tom Abbott gives an overview of Stormpath’s no-code SAML support, including:

  • SAML Support for multi-tenant SaaS applications
  • SAML and ID Site – prebuilt workflows and screens to speed your development time
  • Quickstart Demo – enable SAML in your application without code
  • You can find the slides for this presentation on Slideshare.
