The Nutanix Frame™ desktop-as-a-service platform enables customers to implement proper user authentication and authorization security practices with Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) through a set of security roles defined within the Frame platform. In this blog, we'll explain how RBAC works in Frame and discuss the best practices for using third-party SAML2 identity providers and authorization rules to implement RBAC. The Frame-defined security roles specify the level of access to Frame entity types (customer, organization, account) and what can be done in those entity types. Using these Frame roles, you can configure one or more SAML2 or OAuth2 identity providers (IdPs) and then define authorization rules that grant authenticated users one or more of the Frame roles on specific Frame entities.
