How to configure Keeper SSO Connect Cloud with Amazon AWS SSO for seamless and secure SAML 2.0 authentication.
Note: The Keeper app in the AWS portal was originally configured for SSO Connect On-Prem version and we've adapted the instructions in this guide to work with Keeper SSO Connect Cloud™.
Be sure to have already performed the steps in the Admin Console Configuration section.


Log into AWS and select on AWS Single Sign-On.
On the SSO Dashboard, select Configure SSO access to your cloud applications.
On the Applications menu, select Add a new application.
Next select Keeper Security and select Add.**
Keeper is working with AWS to develop an Application Connector.
Fill in the Display name and Description (optional) in the application details section.
In the AWS SSO metadata section, select the download button to export the AWS SSO SAML metadata file. This file gets imported in the SSO Connect IdP Metadata section on the configuration screen.
Copy this file to the Keeper SSO Connect server and upload it into the Keeper SSO Connect interface by either browsing to or dragging and dropping the file into the Configuration screen's SAML Metadata area:
Next download the Keeper metadata file and upload it to the AWS Application metadata file. Navigate to the view screen of the Keeper SSO Connect Cloud™ provisioning.
Enter View Screen
Click the "Export Metadata" button to download the config.xml file.
Export Keeper Metadata
Back on the Ping Identity application configuration, select the Select File button and choose the config.xml file downloaded in the above step.
After saving changes the Configuration for Keeper Password Manager has been saved success message will be displayed.
Note: The Keeper SSL certificate cannot be larger than 2048K or the below error will be received.
    Either, generate a smaller SSL certificate, re-export and import the metadata file or manually set the ACS URL and Audience URL in the AWS SSO application configuration.
Next, Ensure the Keeper application attributes that are to be mapped to AWS SSO are correct (These should be set by default. Select the Attribute mappings tab. The AWS string value to ${user:subject} and format is blank or unspecified. The Keeper Attributes are set as follows:
Keeper Attribute
AWS SSO String Value **
Note: If your AWS email is mapped to the AD UPN (which may not be the actual email address of your users) it can be re-mapped to the email address associated in the users AD profile.
To make this change navigate to the Connect Directory on the AWS SSO page.
Select on the Edit attribute mappings button.
Change the AWS SSO email attribute from ${dir:windowsUpn} to ${dir:email} .
Select on the the Assigned users tab and then the Assign users button to select users or groups to assign the application.
On the Assign Users window:
    Select either Groups or Users
    Type the name of a group or user
    Select on the Search connect directory to initiate the search.
The results of the directory search will display under the search window.
Select the users/groups that are desired to have access to the application and then select the Assign users button.
Note: Keeper SSO Connect expects that the SAML response is signed. Ensure that your identity provider is configured to sign SAML responses.
Your Keeper SSO Connect setup is now complete!
