Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Single Sign-On (SSO) with Introduction Cookie Enabled

When the Introduction Cookie is enabled at the Service Provider, the Identity Provider Proxy relies on the com.sun.identity.SAMLv2.profile.SAMLv2IDPProxy plug-in to determine the preferred Identity Provider to proxy the authentication request to. The default implementation of this plug-in interface in OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 is to consult the Identity Provider Discovery Service to get the information about the preferred Identity Provider . The following figure illustrates the process flow for this use case.
