When your goal is authentication, the IdP is essential because they help ensure the SP recognizes you.
IdP is an Acronym for Identity Provider and plays the critical role of producing identities that provide authentication within an SSO federation, while SP stands for Service Provider. Please note that all validations for IDP and SP will need to be exchanged via metadata. Typically, this can be done through importing XML files. For example, by importing the SP file into the IDP server, and the IDP file into the SP server.
