We have just published a neat little toolkit for those of you who are
interested in SAML-enabling your enterprise application. SAML is a
standards-based single sign-on protocol, which allows an identity
provider to securely log users into an application without a password.
Some of the advantages of SAML that you avoid passwords altogether and
can centralize access control at your identity provider.
OneLogin's SAML kit supports both service provider and identity
provider initiated web SSO and comes with a working example
application. If you sign up for a free trial with OneLogin, you can
also test the example app or your own code with a live identity
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or are interested in
partnering with OneLogin.
Hi there, thanks for releasing this toolkit. Does "supports both
service provider and identity provider initiated web SSO" means you
can run identity provider service with this toolkit?
Also, does anyone have experience with saml2ruby gem?
Looks like these are the only 2 saml libraries I can find, and both
has limited documentation.
If I need to implement identity provider service which library is best
None of those will give you SAML identity provider functionality. They
are both SAML service provider interfaces.
Thanks for the reply, So I guess there is no ruby implementation for
SAML IdP service yet (or at least not open source one).
We are looking for a senior Rails 3 developer to stand up an environment
that will host and administer user accounts, integrate with SAML / Oauth
endpoints (like OmniAuth, Facebook, Twitter and others) and support
eCommerce transactions (like Paypal or other third-party credit card
processing APIs). Bare bones UI functionality is fine from this person,
but rock-solid middleware and backend knowledge is a must, especially on
the authentication and database integration piece.
