SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language)

Learn to speak the language of security.

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is the most-used security language that has come to define the relationship between identity providers and service providers. An open-source XML tool, SAML is an absolute must for anyone needing reliable access to secure domains, as it eliminates the need for passwords and uses digital signatures instead. With SAML, there’s reduced risk of phishing and identity theft for service providers, since they don’t have to store log-in credentials for individuals, making damaging data breaches less likely.
