Enabling SAML V2.0 authentication for LDAP operators

Starting from Version 9.5.5, BigFix supports SAML V2.0 authentication via LDAP-backed SAML identity providers. After configuration, SAML V2.0 support enables:

  • Two-factor authentication for BigFix with Common Access Cards (CAC), Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards, or other factors, if required by the Identity Provider.
  • Web-based Single Sign-On authentication method from the identity provider login URL. Logged in users are automatically redirected, upon request, to the web-based components that support SAML V2.0 authentication without having to log in again.
