In this video, learn about the Cognito and SAML authentication login workflow.
- [Instructor] Because Cognito is SAML compatible,…the login workflow that we'll learn about here…is very similar to what you would see…if you were in a corporate environment…using Active Directory to log into the AWS console.…In this diagram, you see the entire process.…It begins with a user trying to reach your application…from their mobile device.…This individual may choose one…of the available social login providers…such as Facebook, Amazon or Google…to avoid having to type a username and password.…
If this is the case, their identity will be verified…against their provider of choice…and if they pass verification,…they'll be issued a token.…This token will then go back to Cognito…to be validated against the chosen provider.…If the above passes, then the person is considered logged in…and can access their Cognito identity which contains…all their user profile information and preferences.…Let's take a break from our diagram for a moment…to explain a couple of Cognito concepts here.…
User pools are Cognito's own storage mechanism…

- S3 security policies, encryption, and version control
