Microsoft Azure AD (Active Directory) federated authentication service allows users to log in to Office 365 using SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) authentication.
SAML provides an open-standard for exchanging authentication and authorization information between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider. An identity provider, such as idQ Enterprise, is a service that manages user identities. Users who are authenticated by the identity provider can obtain a token to log into Office 365.
idQ Enterprise provides a passwordless authentication for logging into Office 365 via SAML protocol. To be protected by idQ Enterprise Platform, Office 365 needs to be integrated with idQ Enterprise. idQ Enterprise enables users to securely log into Office 365 by scanning an idQ QR code using an idQ Trusted Device. Authentication is performed by inBay’s idQ Enterprise located in the Internet cloud.
This guide describes how to perform configuration to integrate Office 365 with idQ Enterprise so that users can log into Office 365 using an idQ Trusted Device.
