SecurID® Integrations

Shibboleth IDP - RSA Ready SecurID Access Implementation Guide

Certified: September 1st, 2020


Solution Summary

Use Case

When integrated, end users of applications protected by Shibboleth IDP must authenticate with RSA SecurID Access to sign in. Shibboleth IDP can integrate using SSO Agent or Relying Party.


Integration Types

SSO Agent integrations use SAML 2.0 technology to direct users’ web browsers to Cloud Authentication Service for authentication. SSO Agents also provide Single Sign-On to other applications using the RSA Application Portal.

Relying party integrations use SAML 2.0 to direct users’ web browsers to Cloud Authentication Service for authentication.


Supported Features

This section shows all of the supported features by integration type and by RSA SecurID Access component. Use this information to determine which integration type and which RSA SecurID Access component your deployment will use. The next section in this guide contains the steps to integrate RSA SecurID Access with Shibboleth IDP for each integration type.
