Thursday, February 09 | 9:30AM–11:00AM | Palm A/D
Session Type: Professional Development
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a standard for the formation and exchange of authentication, attribute, and authorization data as XML. The Shibboleth software uses SAML to perform this exchange across boundaries. This session will provide an overview of SAML and a survey of the technologies that support it, and focus on the technical details of Shibboleth.
