Technical

ProSale IdP is developed according to SAML 2.0 (Security Assertion Markup Language) which is an XML-based open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between security domains, that is, between an identity provider (a producer of assertions) and a service provider (a consumer of assertions). SAML is built on existing standards:

  • XML Extensible Markup Language - SAML uses a standardized dialect of XML
  • XML Schema - SAML assertions and protocols are specified using XML Schema
  • XML Signature - SAML use digital signatures for authentication and message integrity
  • XML Encryption - SAML 2.0 provides elements for encrypted name identifiers, attributes and assertions
  • Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) - SAML relies heavily on HTTP as its communications protocol
  • SOAP - SAML specifies the use of SOAP, specifically SOAP 1.1.
