Service Provider Types: Proxy



The Proxy type of Service Provider is used for locally defined service provider endpoints.  Eg. when a Service Provider does not support SAML, OAuth, OpenIDConnect, WS Federation or other IDHub-supported protocols.

IDHub will act as an intermediary between user, IDP and SP, as demonstrated in the diagram below.
