Overview

Cirrus’ External Identity Provider is a SAML compliant identity provider with a lightweight registration capability. To create an external identity, the end user provides a name, email address and any custom data required. The Registration process validates the email address and collects a password that meets the policies of the organization.

Once registered, the identity can be used for accessing any SAML service provider (or CAS with the Cirrus Proxy service) as illustrated in the diagram below.

  • End Users can create an account in the External Identity Provider Service (upper right) to access enterprise applications (in the middle)
