Applies to:

Oracle Identity Federation - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to configure Oracle Access Manager (OAM) as Service Provider (SP) to create the OAM session based on the authentication method used for login to the Identity Provider (IdP) domain?

Example use case:

Users may authenticate in the IdP domain using one or two factor authentication.
Specific applications / resources in the OAM SP domain are only accessible for users who have authenticated using two factor authentication (2FA) or another higher level form of authentication.
The requirement is to set the OAM session authentication level to a lower or higher level depending on the level of authentication performed in the IdP domain.
The IdP will send the authentication level in the AuthnContext element of SAML 2.0 assertions.
