Q. We already use SAML products; can we use these to join the OpenAthens Federation?
SAML 2.0 offers many different options on passing attributes, how to use PKI (certificates), and other implementation details. SAML is not ‘Plug'n'Play’ technology so it’s not possible to say whether the SAML tools you are using can be used in the OpenAthens Federation.
If you can’t use what you’ve already got, OpenAthens Keystone is a lightweight, simple-to-deploy product that can be deployed alongside your existing SAML tools.
The OpenAthens Federation supports the Interoperable SAML 2.0 Web Browser SSO Deployment Profile so it can operate in the same way as every other access management federation.
