Salesforce federated authentication service allows users to log in to Salesforce 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 in to Salesforce. 

idQ Enterprise provides a passwordless authentication for logging in to Salesforce via SAML protocol. To be protected by the idQ Enterprise platform, Salesforce needs to be integrated with idQ Enterprise.  idQ Enterprise enables users to securely log in to Salesforce by scanning idQ QR codes using idQ Access. Authorization is performed by inBay’s idQ Enterprise platform located in the cloud. 

This guide describes how to perform configuration to integrate Salesforce with idQ Enterprise so that users can log in to Salesforce through SAML authentication.
