Issue/Introduction



Does Password Authority 4.5.3 support SAML as a service provider (SP)?

Environment

Password Authority 4.5.3

Resolution

PA has a JAAS implementation so it should be possible, in theory, to write a custom authentication connector for PA. Included below is the PA Connector Development Guide below for reference:

Please note writing custom authentication connectors does fall outside the scope of CA Support.
