ADFS (Active Directory Federation Service) Advice

Hi guys,

I hope you are all well and can assist.
We are investigating solutions for federated single sign-on.
One of these solutions we are researching is ADFS.
We are very shallow in terms of knowledge on what is required from an ADFS point of view.

One question I have is this.

I am not sure at present, if both the Identity Provider and the Service Provider, need to have the same federated SSO implementations in order for them to have federated SSO capability.

For example, if Company A were to use ADFS with SAML 2.0, and Company B used F5, would they still be able practise federated SSO, or do both ends need to be for example, ADFS?

Are you guys able to shed some light on this?

Any help greatly appreciated.

the F5 side must be able to redirect the users and consume the ADFS claims, if it can then it will work.

Hi busbar.
Thanks so much for your kind response.

When you say it must be able to consume and redirect the users, does that meand that Company B would still have to have an ADFS Server, so that the F5 could redirect the users to this ADFS server?
