  • Hi David,

    Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between security domains. ADFS also utilizes SAML package and transport claims data between trust partners. The following article is provided for your reference:

    For detailed information about how to customize the ADFS 2.0 Sign-In Pages, you can refer to the following article:

  • Hello David,

    After you deployed Single Sign-On for your organization, users will be redirected to AD FS 2.0 server in your on-premise domain for authentication. You can run the cmdlet Get-MsolDomainFederationSettings after connecting Windows Powershell to Office 365 to review settings of your federated domain. For more information about how to deploy AD FS 2.0, please refer to article below.

    Plan for and deploy Active Directory Federation Services 2.0 for use with single sign-on

  • Hi David,

    Office 365 does support SAML.  You need to support both the SAML active profile (ECP) as well as the passive profile or else any thick client apps like Outlook Our subscription service supports both profiles and includes simple connectors for ASP.Net applications if you do not want to use ADFS.
