Why Have Your SAML Product Kantara Initiative Interoperability Certified?

The SAML standard continues to be one of the most widely adopted identity management standards in the world. With industries from around the globe adopting SAML, the critical identity information that flows over SAML represents millions of identities each year. To ensure that identity information is securely handled, Kantara Initiative full-matrix interoperability certification is mission critical for these industries. There are typically some 6-8 participating products from around the globe participating in each round of testing with some 500 SAML transactions performed.

Kantara Initiative selected Drummond Group, the trusted interoperability test lab, as its testing partner.  Drummond Group has a proven track record of certification of interoperability of software, having tested hundreds of products from around the globe in a variety of standards.

What will be tested?

The Kantara Initiative SAML 2.0 test criteria test plan covers the required functionality through documented test steps. Version 3.3 of the test plan was finalized last month and will be used in this year’s test event. It will be similar to last year’s version 3.2.2 but also includes the new eGov 2.0 profile. You can find the test plan at: http://kantarainitiative.org/confluence/display/certification/SAML+2.0+Full+Matrix+Test+Event

eGov profiles vs. 1.5 and 2.0 will be tested in this upcoming test event.  The SAML 2.0 eGovernment Profile 2.0 reflects the features deemed necessary or desirable from software implementations in support of a variety of deployment profiles planned and in use for government identity management. One aspect of this version of the profile that is particularly interesting is the inclusion of Metadata and Trust Management support.
