JWT and SAML

OpenID Connect, OAuth 2.0, JWT and JWT claims are first class citizens in FoxIDs. Internally claims are always represented as JWT claims and request / response properties are described with OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect attributes.

FoxIDs converts between standards where attributes are converted to the same internal representation using JWT claims and OAuth 2.0 / OpenID Connect attributes.
Therefor, SAML 2.0 claims is internally converted to JWT claims between up-party and down-party.
