Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single Sign-On

Federated Identity Related Protocols

  • SAML
  • OIDC (OpenID Connect)

Integrated Identity Related Protocols

  • Kerberos
  • SESAME, KryptoKnight, NetSP (Mentioned in Sybex. I don’t dive into those legacies, so I assume they are similar to Kerberos.)

Directory Related Protocols

  • LDAP
  • SPML


  • The Sybex CISSP Study Guide introduced a couple of markup languages, such as HTML, XML, XACML, and SPML. It provides some background information to help readers understand SAML. Don’t be confused with the topic of SSO.
