Leveraging SAML SSO with Cerbos and BoxyHQ: Elevating enterprise authorization

In a recent step-by-step tutorial, Senior Developer at BoxyHQ, Kiran K, walked through the process of integrating BoxyHQ's open source Enterprise SSO solution, SAML Jackson, with Cerbos to enable SAML SSO-based (Single Sign-On) enterprise authentication and authorization, with Okta as the Identity Provider (IdP). The integration enhances the security and user experience for enterprise applications.

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) remains a popular choice for SSO due to its security benefits, improved user experience, and cost-saving advantages. BoxyHQ offers an open source project that simplifies implementing SAML by handling all service provider functionality and wrapping it with the widely used OAuth 2.0 protocol. Cerbos, on the other hand, is a scalable, open source, language-agnostic authorization solution which allows context-aware access control policies for application resources.

The tutorial put together by Kiran demonstrates how integrating SAML SSO with Jackson and Cerbos provides robust security and a seamless experience for users. This integration paves the way for even more possibilities in the development of enterprise apps.
