Happy Eud to you. I've seen your post about using SAML with your custom Web Application. So I'd like to know if you have succeeded in implementing SAML there. Also I want to ask you the following.

- Do you know if there is a list of servers and applications that support SAML? Also is there a list of AAA servers that do support such protocol too.

- As far as I see, it's meant to be used with web applications only, so is there any alternative solutions for non web applications (telnet server for example)?

Thanks

Wsalam,

Yes, I have been successful in implementing SAML. As for your questions, see below :

1. There are some companies out there who provide you SAML solution i.e. as a IDP (identity provider) or as a Source provider.

The ones I came across were

2. Yeah, i have seen SAML for web applications so far but I believe pingidentity has some implementation wherein, you get software/application, which keeps running like a server and listens to the incoming requests.

I dont know the scope of your project, but all this is done using Java api's. Most preferred out there are OPENSAML and Apache XML Security Library.

I hope the information helps.
