While many technology stacks include some SAML (like WS-*), the core ecosystem around SAML is the single sign on use case with the full set of protocols, binding, metadata etc. Part of my involvement relates to:

  • I convened a SAML product and service listing on Wikipedia to document the richness of this ecosystem and improve networking in the community;
  • Kantara's Federation Interoperability Work Group is taking care of SAML implementaiton and deployment profiles that reflect current best practice and industry standards. See my SAML family tree describing the relationships;
  • To improve STORK's technical interoperability with industry standard deployments I am convening the STORK-SAML interoperability interest group for this purpose.
