SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML-based open standard for transferring identity data between two parties -- an IdP (Identity Provider) and a Service Provider (SP). SAML is often used to implement SSO because it allows users to sign in one time (to the IdP) and access multiple service providers. Turbonomic supports Single Sign-On (SSO) using any SAML 2.0-compliant SSO IdP (Identity Provider).
