A Principal is an entity (e.g., an end user or a computer program) that has an identity provided by an identity provider. A service provider provides services to the Principal.

Once the Principal is authenticated to the identity provider, the identity provider can provide an authentication assertion to the Principal, who can present this assertion to the service provider. The Principal is then also authenticated to the service provider if the service provider trusts the assertion.
