Overview

One of the challenges in enterprise application management is the large number of applications that the average enterprise user needs to access. Single sign-on (SSO) is an effective way to make access more convenient for the user and at the same time more secure for the enterprise.

Some SSO solutions are based on integrated Active Directory (AD) on the corporate intranet. One big drawback of this approach is that it restricts the Web application to the corporate intranet. This results in lack of flexibility in deployment options as well as certain security compromises.

VMware Horizon Workspace uses the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 standard to support SSO. This support allows more flexibility and better security than an integrated AD solution. This article describes SAML concepts and shows how to set up a sample Web application in Horizon Workspace with SAML, so you can see SSO in action. It also discusses the considerations and integration points for a Web application to support SAML 2.0 integration with Horizon Workspace.
