Using SAML

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is a standard that allows a form of authentication of a person on one or more applications, where the source of the authentication information is an Identity Provider (IDP) and the application wishing to authenticate the user is a Service Provider (SP).

SAML is a mature standard, but over time, other protocols or standards such as OpenIDConnect have emerged as being arguably more secure, modern, and flexible alternatives.

Mydex CIC does offer SAML to organisations wishing to use the Mydex Identity Services to authenticate members to their applications. However, we strongly recommend using our OpenIDConnect offering instead, unless you are unable to.

If you really do need to use SAML to integrate to Mydex Identity Services, please contact us to discuss your needs further.
