Open Mic Webcast: Configuring an IBM Domino Web Server to use Web federated Login (SAML)

IBM is offering an Open Mic Webcast about configuring SAML authentication on a IBM Domino Web Server.


This procedure ensures that an IBM Domino Web server can participate in SAML-based single sign-on (SSO). The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standard allows a Domino server to trust an authentication assertion from a specified identity provider (IdP).

After a presentation, attendees will be given an opportunity to ask our panel of experts questions. Throughout the event, attendees will also be encouraged to comment or ask questions in the IBM Connections Meetings Web chat. Follow us on Twitter @IBM_ICSsupport.

Domino SAML authentication and ADFS certificate

A colleague found out, that the certificate on the ADFS server has a automatic rollover and per default is valid for 1 year.

But after the rollover of the key the SAML authentication does not work anymore for IBM Notes clients. ThereĀ“s a quite simple solution

>> “Re-Download” the “FederationMetadata.xml” file from the ADFS server and reimport this file in >> the IdPCat configuration.

Afterwards SAML authentication is working fine again.
