LogicGate Single Sign On with Active Directory
LogicGate supports single sign-on (SSO) through the SAML 2.0 standard. SAML 2.0 is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens that contain assertions to pass information about a user between a SAML identity provider (your organization) and a SAML service provider (LogicGate). To use SAML SSO integration with LogicGate, you must have a SAML 2.0 compatible identity provider (IdP) server for authenticating LogicGate users.
A SAML 2.0 IdP can take many forms, one of which is a self-hosted Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) server. ADFS is a service provided by Microsoft as a standard role for Windows Server that provides a web login using existing Active Directory credentials.
To use ADFS to log in to your LogicGate instance, you need the following components:
- An Active Directory instance where all users have an email address attribute.
- A server running Microsoft Server 2012 or 2008 with ADFS.
- A LogicGate instance with SSO enabled.
