This FREE On-Demand learning presentation explains how to configure RSA SecurID Access SAML and HFED (HTTP Federation Proxy) connectors that in turn are the configuration for SAML or HFED Applications, respectively.


From podcasts presented by RSA Partner Engineering, the details of the connector parameters are discussed as well as how they are used in configuring RSA SecurID Access applications.



RSA SecurID Access administrators and systems engineers who would like to know more about SAML application configuration.
