Security Access Mark-up Language (SAML) & Single Sign-on Implementation
Presented by Karen Fritsche and Sarah Heinen
To accomplish a Web Single Sign-On application with their brokerage back office vendor, American Century Investments solution included the use of SAML. This presentation will provide an overview of: SAML, its benefits and several Single Sign-On options; integration, architecture and configuration options; and the SAML SSO implementation completed by American Century Investments.
Karen Fritsche is an Application Architect and Sarah Heinen is a Programmer / Analyst with American Century Investments in Kansas City. As part of the IT application development team that supports the company's retail web sites www.americancentury.com and www.learningquestsavings.com, they focus on the secure on-line financial transactions of the sites, either through internal services or by establishing single sign-on connectivity to third party vendor sites.
