SAML2.0 at Sigstr

Sigstr supports the SAML 2.0 authentication framework.  SAML is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between an identity provider and a service provider. Most notably, it addresses web browser single sign-on (SSO) for enterprise companies. 

SAML completely eliminates all passwords and instead uses standard cryptography and digital signatures to pass a secure sign-in token from an identity provider to a SaaS application, like Sigstr.

Sigstr supports both Sigstr initiated and Identity Provider (IdP) initiated SAML integrations.  For Sigstr initiated SAML, we require certain credentials from your SAML admin for setup. For IdP initiated SAML, we will work with your team to provide the credentials to add Sigstr as an approved application to your IdP.


SAML authentication at Sigstr is typically configured by providing your IDP's metadata and certificate information, so that Sigstr can validate SAML requests for your organization.

Sigstr also provides the option to disable all other login methods (username & password, Google/O365 Sign-in, etc) so that only SAML logins are allowed for your Sigstr instance.
