 +# SAML 2.0
 +
 +Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0) is an XML-based, open-standard data format used for exchanging authentication and authorization data between a Service Provider and an Identity Provider.
 +
 +It uses security assertion tokens to to pass information about the end user between the identity provider and the service provider.
 +
 +SAML 2.0 enables web-based authentication and authorization scenarios including cross-domain single sign-on (SSO).
