When you use SAML to connect Boardingware with your identity provider (IdP), it’s easy to provide your admins, staff, students, and parents with single sign-on access to Boardingware. Plus, you can improve security and compliance with a single point of control for access to your schools data.
SAML 2.0 supports several major Identity Providers including Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), Google Apps, OneLogin and Okta.
The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), developed by the Security Services Technical Committee of OASIS, is an XML-based framework for communicating user authentication, entitlement, and attribute information. As its name suggests, SAML allows business entities to make assertions regarding the identity, attributes, and entitlements of a subject (an entity that is often a human user) to other entities, such as a partner company or another enterprise application.Visit Website
