How-to

Selectors and authentication sources can be conditionally chained together in paths to form policies.

  • PingFederate must determine if a user is inside your internal network. You must know CIDR network ranges that identify your internal network.
  • Upon identifying the network location of your user, you must know how you intend on authenticating your user in each case.
    • Configure authentication adapters, such as the Kerberos adapter and the HTML form adapter, along with their dependencies (Kerberos Realms and password credential validators (PCVs), respectively).
  • Define an authentication policy contract to allow the outcome of the authentication process to be mapped into your SAML connections or OAuth environment.
