Okta is certified for OpenID Connect for Basic, Implicit, Hybrid, and Publishing Configuration Information (Config OP).
OpenID Connect is a simple identity layer on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol, which allows clients to verify the identity of an end user based on the authentication performed by an authorization server.
Okta accepts unlimited inbound SAML connections.
Our SAML integration supports any IdP – enterprise, open source, or home-grown. Okta can be a SAML IdP and can help your users SSO into third-party apps, like Zendesk, Workday, and Salesforce.
Support individual SAML IdPs per customer organization, giving your application the ability to federate authentication to the right IdP.
Your users can log in once and access all your applications, without needing to reauthenticate or change credentials.
