Resolution

IDP Initiated Login

•Access starts from the IDP
•An unsolicited SAML Response message is posted to the Service provider, containing the user data and trust information.
•The service provider validates the response has been correctly built and signed.
•The end user is granted access to the Service provider
 

SP Initiated Login

•Access starts from the SP
•The SP redirects the user session to the IdP with a SAML request (Authentication request)
•The user logs into the IdP (manually or seamlessly)
•The IdP redirects the user session back to the SP with a SAML Response containing the user data and trust information.
•The service provider validates the response has been correctly built and signed.
•The end user is granted access to the Service provider
 

Note: In any of the authentication scenarios, all the interactions between SP and IdP occur via the end user’s browser session. There is no direct interaction between SP and IdP
