- SAML 2.0: Web-based authorization including cross-domain SSO.
SAML (SAML 1.0 and 2.0) and OpenID Connect (OIDC) are identity protocols, designed to authenticate users, and provide identity data for access control and as a communication method for a user’s identity. SAML uses XML for its identity data format and simple HTTP or SOAP for data transport mechanisms.
OpenID Connect extends OAuth 2.0. The OAuth 2.0 protocol provides API security via scoped access tokens, and OpenID Connect provides user authentication and single sign-on (SSO) functionality.
