SSO authentication is performed by the IdP

By default, when there is one IdP for a company, users navigating to a Experience Cloud application are automatically signed in when they access the application. Some companies have multiple IdPs to manage different segments of their users. When there are multiple IdPs available, the user is prompted to choose the IdP that authenticates their account. Additionally, mobile users and some web browsers can be directed to a specific IdP without offering a choice to the user.
