Soffid Identity Federation addon helps administrators to manage an Identity Federation.
The main supported standard for Identity Federation is SAML. SAML allows to completely detach the identification process from web applications, known as Service Providers. With SAML, identification is performed by specialized servers known as "Identity Providers".
Additionaly, some other, less secure, but some times convenient protocols like oAuth and OpenID-connect protocols are supported. Elder protocols like Openid (do not confuse with OpenID-Connect) are deprecated and no longer supperted.
With Soffid you can manage the whole federation security configuration, increasing the security while reducing the federation management costs. Soffid can also act as a Service Provider, serving identities to any SAML capable application server.
To setup an Identity Federation:
- Login as administrator
- Access the "Addon management" screen
- Upload the identity-federation.jar addon
- Restart the console
