Oracle Identity & Access Manager Interview Questions and Answers

Explain the flow when an user makes a federation request?

Answer #1

Step 1: The user logs in to the identity provider using an ID and password for authentication. Once the user is authenticated, a session cookie is placed in the browser.
Step 2: The user then clicks on the link to view an application residing on the service provider. The IdP creates a SAML assertion based on the user’s browser cookie, digitally signs the assertion, and then redirects to the SP.
Step 3: The SP receives the SAML assertion, extracts the user’s identity information, and maps the user to a local user account on the destination site.
Step 4: An authorization check is then performed and if successfully authorized, redirects the user’s browser to the protected resource. If the SP successfully received and validated the user, it will place its own cookie in the user’s browser so the user can now navigate between applications in both domains without additional logins.
