Understanding Application Protocols in Single Sign On

AuthAnvil Single Sign On allows you to create multiple kinds of applications based on a specific protocol. Each one has a specific function designed for integration with certain kinds of applications.

The information below applies to AuthAnvil Single Sign On v4.5 and newer:

 

SSO Application Protocols

WS-Federation

A passive federation protocol that is part of the WS-* suite used for web applications.

  • Reply To URL: The location to where AuthAnvil will send the token
  • Audience URI: A unique identifier of the application

WS-Trust

An active federation protocol that is part of the WS-* suite used for web services.

  • Audience URI: A unique identifier of the application

IdP-Init

A passive federation protocol that is part of the SAML 2.0 protocol suite.

  • Reply To URL: The location where AuthAnvil will send the token
  • Audience URI: A unique identifier of the application

Redirect

A simple protocol that will redirect the user to a given location. Can be used like a 'bookmark' in SSO.

  • Reply To URL: The location where AuthAnvil will redirect the user
  • Token Lifetime: Since this protocol doesn't issue a token the lifetime value is ignored

SAML 1.1

A passive federation protocol that is part of the SAML 1.1 protocol suite.

  • Reply To URL: The location where AuthAnvil will send the token
  • Audience URI: A unique identifier of the application

SP-Init Redirect

  • Reply To URL: Referred to as the Assertion Consumer Service URL. It specifies the location where AuthAnvil will send the token and it is a unique identifier for the application.
