ID Director for SAML
Security Assertion Markup Language (better known as its acronym, SAML) is a protocol for authenticating to web applications. Federating identities is a common practice that involves storing user identities across discrete applications and organizations. SAML allows these federated apps and organizations to create a trusted authentication acknowledgment and hand-off.
BIO-key ID Director for SAML adds a layer of security and convenience that’s native to biometric authentication. ID Director reduces the organizations risk of using an open interface authentication tool, yet embraces the ease and convenience of SAML authentication, which is designed to streamline access and enhance workflow.
Organizations that use SAML authenticate users to third-party web apps (like Gmail for Business, Office 365, Salesforce, Expensify, Box, Workday, etc.) by redirecting the user’s browser to a company login page. After a successful authentication on that login page, SAML redirects the user’s browser back to that third-party web app where they are granted access. BIO-key adds strong security and one-touch instant sign-in to the SAML authentication process.
BIO-key makes biometric SSO possible for SAML with the Power of a Touch, using our compact fingerprint scanners for Windows, or any of the 30+ fingerprint scanners with which our software is integrated.
