Joomla SAML SP plugin gives the ability to enable SAML Single Sign-On for Joomla site. Joomla SAML SP plugin is compatible with all SAML Identity Providers. Here we will go through a guide to configure SSO between Joomla and PingFederate / PingOne. By the end of this guide, Ping One users should be able to log in and register to Joomla site.
All the information required to configure the PingOne i.e. plugin’s metadata is given in the Service Provider Metadata tab of the miniOrange plugin.
Provide the SAML configuration details for the application.
1.Signing: In the dropdown list, select the signing certificate you want to use.
2.SAML Metadata: Click Download to retrieve the SAML metadata for PingOne. This supplies the Ping One connection information to the application.
3.Protocol Version: Select the SAML protocol version appropriate for your application.
4.Upload Metadata: There are 3 ways to provide service provider metadata to PingOne
I.Encrypt Assertion: If selected, the assertions PingOne sends to the SP for the application will be encrypted.
II.Encryption Certificate: Upload the certificate from miniOrange plugin to use to encrypt the assertions.
III.Encryption Algorithm: Choose the algorithm to use for encrypting the assertions. We recommend AES_256 (the default), but you can select AES_128 instead.
IV.Transport Algorithm: The algorithm used for securely transporting the encryption key. Currently, RSA-OAEP is the only transport algorithm supported.
V.Force Re-authentication: If selected, users having a current, active SSO session will be re- authenticated by the identity bridge to establish a connection to this application.
