Introduction #

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, specifically between an identity provider (IdP) and a service provider (SP). It allows secure web domains to exchange user authentication and authorization data. Using SAML, an online service provider can contact a separate online identity provider to authenticate users who are trying to access secure content.

Here – Successfulchannels is the SP and Client is the IDP
