9.0 Configuring Trusted Providers

This section discusses configuring trust so that two user accounts can be associated with each other without the sites exchanging data. It explains how to set up the trust with internal and external trusted identity providers, service providers, and embedded service providers (ESPs). Steps for configuring trusted provider types are similar, and are also similar between the Liberty and SAML protocols. The interface pages in this section show the configuration of a Liberty trusted service provider.
