Used to broker between protocols aka "token translation".  The calling client uses OIDC and the request gets translated and forwarded to an SAML broker for authentication. After successful SAML authentication the returning assertion is validated and translated into OIDC in order for the calling client to understand the response. 

Note that consent is not handled by this authenticator. It has to be handled on SAML IDP side.
