SAML

Note: For information about configuring SSO/SAML in FedRAMP containers, see Configure SSO/SAML Authentication in FedRAMP Containers.

You can configure Tenable.io to accept credentials from your SAML identity provider (for example, Okta). This allows for an additional layer of security, where the SAML credentials are certified for use within Tenable.io . Once you enable SAML for a user, they can log in to Tenable.io directly through their identity provider, which automatically signs them in and redirects them to the Tenable.io landing page.

On the SAML page, you can view and manage your SAML credentials. You can also enable, disable, and add new configurations for users within your Tenable.io instance.

Note: Tenable.io supports SAML 2.0 configurations.

Note: Once SAML is configured for a user, they must log in normally one time before they can access the Sign in via SSO link on the Tenable.io login page.

SAML Details

On the SAML page, you can view a table that includes the following details about your SAML configurations:

Column Description
UUID The UUID that Tenable.io automatically generates when you create a new SAML configuration.
Description

A description for the SAML configuration.

Last Login

The date and time on which a user on your instance last successfully logged in via the SAML configuration.

Note: The Last Login column shows a value only if Tenable.io has login data for the SAML identity provider.

Last Attempted Login

The date and time on which a user on your instance last attempted to log in via the SAML configuration.

Note: The Last Attempted Login column shows a value only if Tenable.io has attempted login data for the SAML identity provider.

Certificate

The certificate for the SAML configuration.

In the certificate column, you can complete the following tasks.

  • Click the button to copy the certificate to your clipboard.

  • Hover over the button to view the certificate expiration date.

    Note: Your identity provider determines the expiration date for your certificate.

Actions

An interactive column from which you can download the metadata.xml file that contains one or more security certificates for the configuration.

To download the metadata.xml file:

  1. In the Actions column for the configuration from which you want to download a metadata.xml file, click the button.

    An options menu appears.

  2. In the menu, click Download SP Metadata.

    Tenable.io downloads the metadata.xml file to your computer.
