A recent client implemented an innovative SAML 2.0 use case using the EasyConnect SAML product solution from SSO Easy.
The case study of the customer’s use case involves users in their organization leveraging their Google Apps login credentials to gain access to Salesforce, leveraging OpenID.
Users first gain access to Google Apps using their Google Apps ID and Password. In this instance, Google Apps is essentially acting as the Identity Provider (IDP) in the SAML 2.0 implementation.
Once the Single Sign On (SSO) connection to Google Apps has been enabled, the OpenID capability in the EasyConnect product from SSO Easy is enabled to provide seamless SSO access to Salesforce.
