SASE is a cloud-based network security solution, whereas SD-WAN is a network virtualization solution. SASE can be delivered as a service, making it more scalable and resilient than SD-WAN. Additionally, SASE offers more comprehensive security features than SD-WAN, including Zero Trust security and built-in protection against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.
The main difference between SAML and OIDC is that SAML builds the trust relationship between the service provider (SP) and the IdP, whereas OIDC trusts the channel (HTTPS) that is used to obtain the security token.
The difference between SAML and LDAP is that SAML is designed for cloud-based connections using only an IdP and SP to communicate user data. LDAP, however, is typically used for accessing on-premises resources by installing a client on the user's device to connect with a directory service.
