FoxIDs SAML 2.0 authentication method

By configuring an SAML 2.0 authentication method and a OpenID Connect application registration FoxIDs become a bridge between SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect. FoxIDs will then handle the SAML 2.0 connection as a Relying Party (RP) / Service Provider (SP) and you only need to care about OpenID Connect in your application.

It is possible to configure multiple SAML 2.0 authentication methods which can then be selected by OpenID Connect application registrations and SAML 2.0 application registrations.

FoxIDs support SAMl 2.0 redirect and post bindings. Both the login, logout and single logout SAML 2.0 profiles are supported. The Artifact profile is not supported.

A authentication method expose SAML 2.0 metadata and can be configured with SAML 2.0 metadata or by manually adding the configuration details.

The FoxIDs SAML 2.0 metadata do only include logout and single logout information if logout is configured in the SAML 2.0 authentication method.
