SAML for ASP.NET Core
Example projects to help you
Example ASP.NET Core projects written in C#, with full source code, are included.
The examples demonstrate:
- Acting as the SAML service provider (SP)
- Acting as the SAML identity provider (IdP)
- Service provider initiated SSO
- Identity provider initiated SSO
- Setting and retrieving SAML attributes
- SAML metadata creation and consumption
- ASP.NET Core Identity integration
High Level API
Add SSO functionality to your web application with just a few lines of code.
A high-level, configuration-driven API provides a very simple to use interface that hides the mechanics of SAML SSO. This makes it easy to add SSO functionality to your web application with just a few lines of code.
Configuration changes, including adding support for additional partner identity providers or service providers, may be made with zero code changes.
The SAML authentication handler provides SSO support for service provider applications. The SAML middleware provides SSO support for identity provider applications. The middleware approach means even fewer lines of code.
Initiating SSO from the SP
A SAML authn request is created and sent to the IdP.
// SP-initiated SSO. await _samlServiceProvider.InitiateSsoAsync(partnerName, returnUrl);
Initiating SSO from the IdP
A SAML response is created and sent to the IdP.
// IdP-initiated SSO. await _samlIdentityProvider.InitiateSsoAsync(partnerName, userName, attributes, relayState);
Receiving the SAML Response
A SAML response is received from the SP and processed.
// SP or IdP-initiated SSO. var ssoResult = await _samlServiceProvider.ReceiveSsoAsync();
Low Level API
A low-level API provides complete control and flexibility.
The low-level API provides accesses to the SAML profiles, protocols, bindings, assertions and metadata. The high-level API is implemented using the low-level API. For most scenarios, the high-level API provides all the control you need in a simpler interface. For those situations where this isn’t enough, the low-level API is available.
The SAML component supports all .NET Core framework versions. This includes all versions of Visual Studio. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server and Desktop are supported.
For your assurance and convenience, the complete source code for the component is available for purchase.
