SAML-based products and services

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

SAML is a set of specifications that encompasses the XML-format for security tokens containing assertions to pass information about a user and protocols and profiles to implement authentication and authorization scenarios. This document provides an overview about products and services that implement SAML 2.0 key actors like Identity providers or components to enable services to be SAML-enabled.

Products that provide SAML actors[edit]

SAML actors are Identity Providers (IdP), Service Providers (SP), Discovery Services, Metadata services etc. This table shows the capability of products according to Kantara Initiative testing.[1][2] Claimed capabilities are in column "other". Each mark denotes that at least one interoperability test was passed. Detailed results with product and test procedure versions are available at the Kantara/Liberty site given below.

NOTE: This table represents a snapshot over time roll up of the most recent product test results (multiple testing rounds). Please note that some products features and abilities may have been updated since they were last tested. Please check the website information of the originating product for the latest features and updates.
