Identity-Provider-Initiated Single Sign-On

For Identity-Provider-Initiated Single Sign-On (SSO), a third-party Identity Provider (IdP) is the SSO provider. When a user logs in to an application:

  1. The application redirects the user to an identity provider.

  2. The third-party identity provider performs authentication and authorization.

  3. Upon successful authentication, the user is returned to the application.
