Identity Providers

An Identity Provider is responsible for issuing identification information for all providers looking to interact / service with the system in any possible way. This is achieved by verifying a security token as an alternative to explicitly authenticating a user. A user needs to be authenticated only once - single sign-on - and pass along a security token which is processed by an Identity Assertion Provider for each system it needs to access.
