Subject: SAML for Authentication vs SAML for Authorisation [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi All,

           I mentioned on the last call that a new way of using SAML tokens has emerged and that I was concerned that it did not follow the standard. In investigating further, I have learned that in this case, SAML has not been used as a part of authentication, rather as a part of authorisation as set out in section 7.10 of ebMS3 Core.


I have written up a short discussion to illustrate difference in mechanism. Please find attached.


Regards, Ian Otto.
