Subject: Re: [saml-dev] Introduction & Question about the "heaviness" of SAML

Hmm... OK, thanks all.

You mention that I should try and create a new SAML profile to do the 
type of thing that we want to do with Tickets. That is, merely specify a 
"key" that the SAML consumer uses to access information in the user's 
account with their SAML producer. The SAML profile could also contain 
information to help with using this key, such as the IP address of the 
user. Is this correct?
