Salesforce SSO or Salesforce Single Sign On solution by miniOrange allows all system users to access all authorised system resources with a single username and password, rather than having separate usernames and passwords for each resource on the network. Salesforce is a cloud-based software firm situated in San Francisco, California, United States. It offers CRM services as well as enterprise applications for customer service, marketing automation, analytics, and application development.

Salesfoce SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) solution provides easy, secure and seamless system for identy access management by establishing a trust relationship between the Service Provider and Identity Provider (IdP). The user credentials and other identifying information are stored and managed by a centralized system called Identity Provider (IdP). Along with miniOrange IDP (Identity Provider), miniOrange provides user authentication from other User stores, external Idenitity Provider and external directories as well. Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with Salesforce org prevents users to log in separately into different applications eliminating user-managed passwords which lessens down the difficulty of remembering and entering username and password repeatedly. With the help of the given guide you can configure Salesforce easily.

Setup single sign-on (SSO) for salesforce so that your end users can log in to Salesforce with single set of credentials from any identity provider or external directory. In this scenario, the admin can setup an identity provider using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). You can also use Active directory (AD) or any database as Identity source.
Setup single sign-on (SSO) so that your employees or members log in to any other application or any external service provider using Salesforce credentials. With this system, your salesforce account will act as a SAML identity provider and integrate with the other applications or service providers.
Salesforce can act as SP and IdP both based on the use case and type of authentication required. You can login into multiple Salesforce orgs using credentials of other org or login to your salesforce org using any Identity source. SSO can be set up and configured between multiple Salesforce orgs to have seamless and secure acess and data security.
With this feature, you will be automatically logged out of all the applications that are connected with Idneity provider (IdP) when you log out from Salesforce org or any other app.
Single Sign-on can make it mandatory for all users to log in using SSO. This will prevent any users from login using any other source and bypassing the login system. No users will be able to have direct login making it a streamline and secure process.
In this flow, the user tries to login to the Serivce Provider (Salesforce) directly. The request is redirected to the Identity Provider for authentication. On sucessfull authentication from the Identity provider, the user is given access to the application.
In this flow, the user logs in to the Identity Provider using his credentials. Now the user can access any of the configured Service Providers (salesforce, etc.) through the Identity Provider Dashboard without having to enter the credentials agian.
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
|SP Entity ID or Issuer||https://[yourdomain].my.salesforce.com/|

(Follow the steps given here to find out Salesforce profileId.)
|Issuer||IDP Entity ID/Issuer in miniorange metadata|
|Identity Provider Certificate||Upload Certificate from miniOrange metadata|
|Request Signature method||RSA-SHA256|

A. Restricting access to Salesforce with IP Blocking
You can use adaptive authentication with Salesforce Single Sign-On (SSO) to improve the security and functionality of Single Sign-On. You can allow a IP Address in certain range for SSO or you can deny it based your requirements and you can also challenge the user to verify his authenticity. Adaptive authentication manages the user authentication bases on different factors such as Device ID, Location, Time of Access, IP Address and many more.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with IP Blocking in following way:
|Allow||Allow user to authenticate and use services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|Challenge||Challenge users with one of the three methods mentioned below for verifying user authenticity.|
|Deny||Deny user authentications and access to services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|User second Factor||The User needs to authenticate using the second factor he has opted or assigned for such as
|KBA (Knowledge-based authentication)||The System will ask user for 2 of 3 questions he has configured in his Self Service Console. Only after right answer to both questions user is allowed to proceed further.|
|OTP over Alternate Email||User will receive a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Console. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.|
B. Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.
Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users will be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with Device Restriction in following way
