The IDentia Discovery Service (DS) provides a convenient way for users to select and use an appropriate IdP during authentication process. The use of IDentia DS removes the hardwired IdP information from the RPs, and enables RPs to retrieve IdP Yadis record directly.
DISCOVERY OF SAML IDP
SAML requires the exchange of IdP and RPs to exchange SAML metadata to establish the necessary trust between IdP and RPs before any authentication process occurs. Therefore, we designed our Yadis discovery service in such a way that it enables not only discovery of IdPs from RP, but also RPs from IdP. Each XRDS record in Yadis will represents the endpoint of the metadata of either RP or IdP.
