Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based framework for authentication and authorization between two entities: a Service Provider and an Identity Provider.
SAML is an open standard mostly used for Single Sign-On (SSO). Authentication information is exchanged through digitally signed XML documents. It's a complex single sign-on (SSO) implementation that enables seamless authentication, mostly between businesses and enterprises.
With SAML, you don't have to worry about typing in authentication credentials or remembering and resetting passwords.
