Use this guide to enable a SecureAuth IdP realm to utilize a SAML ACS begin site.
At this begin site, SecureAuth IdP can consume a SAML assertion (acting as the Service Provider) from an Identity Provider (IdP). From there, the end-user follows the SecureAuth IdP workflow configured in the realm (e.g. 2-Factor Authentication) and is asserted to the Post Authentication target.
For SecureAuth IdP 8.1 appliances, this Begin Site configuration is no longer necessary and is replaced by the SAML Multi-tenant Consumer.
1. Configure an SP to deliver a SAML assertion to SecureAuth IdP
2. Create a New Realm or edit an existing realm to which SAML ACS will be applied in the SecureAuth IdP Web Admin
3. Configure the following tabs in the Web Admin before configuring for SAML ACS:
Overview– the description of the realm and SMTP connections must be defined
Data– an enterprise directory must be integrated with SecureAuth IdP
Workflow– the way in which users will access the target must be defined
Registration Methods– the 2-Factor Authentication methods that will be used to access the target (if any) must be defined
