SAML SSO for Chrome Apps
Helper extension for admins to configure SAML SSO for Chrome apps.
What is SAML SSO for Chrome Apps?
SAML SSO for Chrome Apps is a Chrome extension aimed at empowering admins to implement Single Sign-On (SSO) for multiple Chrome applications. It facilitates admins to manage and forward a selective set of the user's cookies to policy-approved apps. This tool, however, calls for admins to be extra cautious and only whitelist apps that they utmost trust with the user's data, requiring appropriate user consent documents. The codebase of this extension is open-source and can be found on GitHub.
Allow admins to carry over a filtered set of the user's cookies to policy whitelisted participating apps. An empty whitelist will result in the default behavior which is to block all incoming requests and not hand over any cookies.
Admins should only whitelist apps they fully trust with the user's data. They should ensure they have all proper consent forms placed for users as they are granting permissions to certain apps on their behalf and the system will not show the end users any consent forms once permission is granted via admin policy.
For more details on filter options, please see https://github.com/GoogleChrome/chromeos_saml_apps/blob/master/src/schema.json and https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/cookies#method-getAll.
