This section describes how to integrate RSA SecurID Access with Ping Identity PingFederate using relying party. Relying party uses SAML 2.0 to integrate RSA SecurID Access as a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) to Ping Identity PingFederate SAML Service Provider (SP).

Configure RSA Cloud Authentication Service

Perform these steps to configure RSA Cloud Authentication Service as a relying party SAML IdP to Ping Identity PingFederate .


1. Sign into the RSA Cloud Administration Console and browse to Authentication Clients > Relying Parties.

2. Click Add a Relying Party.

3. On the Relying Party Catalog page, click the Add button next to Service Provider SAML option.

4. On the Basic Information page, enter a Name for the relying party and click Next Step.

5. On the Authentication page, configure the authentication settings as required and click Next Step.

6. On the Connection Profile page, select Data Input Method as Enter Manually.

7. In the Service Provider Metadata section, configure the following:

  1. Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URL: Enter the PingFederate ACS URL.
  2. Service Provider Entity ID (Audience): Enter the PingFederate SAML 2.0 Entity ID.

Note:  If ACS URL and Audience are not known, enter temporary place holder values so that you can continue on. After you complete the PingFederate SP configuration and export its metadata, you can import it into this relying party to fill these values automatically.

8. Click Save and Finish.

9. On the My Relying Parties page, locate the PingFederate Relying Party and click Edit > View or Download IdP Metadata.

10. On the View or Download Identity Provider Metadata page, click Download Metadata File button.

11. Click Publish Changes.


Configure Ping Identity PingFederate

Perform these steps to configure Ping Identity PingFederate as a Relying Party SAML SP to RSA Cloud Authentication Service.


1. Logon to PingFederate administrative web console, open the Service Provider tab.

2. Under IDP CONNECTIONS, click Create New.

3. On the Connection Type page, check the BROWSER SSO PROFILES PROTOCOL SAML 2.0 check-box and click Next.
