How SAML 2.0 Authentication Works

At its core, Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 is a means to exchange authorization and authentication information between services. SAML is frequently used to implement internal corporate single sign-on (SSO) solutions where the user logs into a service that acts as the single source of identity. This source then grants access to a subset of other internal services. This post provides an overview of the how and why of SSO and SAML.
