SAML Support within TSS
What Support is there within Top Secret for SAML?
Protocols like SAML are used to exchange messages between different
providers like CA SiteMinder.
E.g. of a flow, CA SiteMinder will received a request written in SAML,
it will analyze it and if the aim is to authenticate the user, it will
build a LDAP request. Behind this the LDAP will do a bind to e.g. TopSecret
in order verify the user.
Neither TSS nor ACF2 will receive and deal with SAML or equivalent protocols directly.
Those protocols are used to exchange message in HTML format among web
browsers, WebSphere, etc...
