An Identity Provider (IdP) is responsible for issuing identification information for all providers looking to interact with an application in any possible way. This is achieved via an authentication module which verifies a security token as an alternative to explicitly authenticating a user within a security realm.

In perimeter authentication a user needs to be authenticated only once (single sign-on) and pass along a security token which is processed by an Identity Assertion Provider for each system it needs to access.
