Providing Identification Services to External Entities using SAML.

Abstract [en]

This project investigates approaches for implementing a method for providing identification services to external entities using SAML. SAML attempts to provide standardized means of exchanging authentication data between multiple parties. By implementing support for SAML both so-called service providers and identity providers can reach a large number of other entities that have done the same. An evaluation of different SAML-features and SAML-libraries was performed in order to produce a prototype that is described in this report. The result of the prototype is a system that allows a user to log in to external websites using existing identification infrastructure such as the user's online bank, with the use of SAML between the service and the identity provider.

Abstract [sv]

Den här rapporten undersöker olika metoder för att kunna tillhandahålla identifieringstjänster till externa entiteter med SAML. SAML försöker att tillhandahålla ett standardiserat sätt att utbyta autentisieringsdata mellan flera parter. Genom att implementera stöd för SAML kan både så kallade tjänsteleverantörer och identitetsleverantörer nå ett stort antal andra entiteter som gjort detsamma. En utvärdering av olika SAML-funktioner och SAML-bibliotek gjordes för att kunna skapa en prototyp som är beskriven i denna rapport. Resultatet av prototypen är ett system som tillåter en användare att logga in på externa webbtjänster genom användandet av existerande identifieringsinfrastruktur såsom användarens internetbank, med hjälp av SAML mellan tjänste- och identitetsleverantören.
