Choicelinx was founded in 2000 by health care professionals who recognized the opportunity to use technology to improve the benefits enrollment process for both employers and their employees. The companyÌøåÀå_s key focus was on the employee experience, finding innovative new ways to make enrolling for benefits simpler and more similar to the way people shop online for other types of products. In addition to pioneering online enrollment that was faster and more convenient than traditional paper-based processes, Choicelinx was ahead of the pack in offering employees easy access to decision support tools integrated into the online enrollment system. This integrated approach makes it easy for employees to find answers to key questions and learn more about specific benefits at the same time they were completing the enrollment process. The company was purchased by Cigna in 2005 to optimize the emerging technology approach to Defined Contribution, a concept that was increasingly recognized in the industry as a way to help employers reduce overall costs. Today, Choicelinx offers its products and services to both Cigna clients and those with other carrier benefits through established benefits broker and consultant relationships
Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0) is a version of the SAML standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between security domains. SAML 2.0 is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens containing assertions to pass information about a principal (usually an end user) between a SAML authority, named an Identity Provider, and a SAML consumer, named a Service Provider. SAML 2.0 enables web-based authentication and authorization scenarios including cross-domain single sign-on (SSO), which helps reduce the administrative overhead of distributing multiple authentication tokens to the user. By using SAML 2.0, organizations can be more competitive in their market, by moving faster than competitors. Organizations who leverage SAML 2.0 can be less prone to be hacked, to experience a security breach, or experience or a data breach, by leveraging SAML 2.0.

The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP; /èöÝldÌ_p/) is an open, vendor-neutral, industry standard application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over an Internet Protocol (IP) network. Directory services play an important role in developing intranet and Internet applications by allowing the sharing of information about users, systems, networks, services, and applications throughout the network. As examples, directory services may provide any organized set of records, often with a hierarchical structure, such as a corporate email directory. Similarly, a telephone directory is a list of subscribers with an address and a phone number. LDAP is specified in a series of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Standard Track publications called Request for Comments (RFCs), using the description language ASN.1. The latest specification is Version 3, published as RFC 4511. A common use of LDAP is to provide a central place to store usernames and passwords. This allows many different applications and services to connect to the LDAP server to validate users. LDAP is based on a simpler subset of the standards contained within the X.500 standard. Because of this relationship, LDAP is sometimes called X.500-lite.
