Subject: RE: [saml-dev] Is a separate "ArtifactReceiver" required?

Sorry to be late to the discussion.

Those who were involved at the Burton Catalyst Interop in July remember that
we (Sigaba) required  the source site to pass the TARGET parameter back to
the destination site. We basically negotiated this with each of the other
Interop vendors. This was part of an unofficial "meta-data" negotiation
between all Interop vendors.

The fact that the resulting URL is not bookmark-able is not necessarily
important here. What is important is that the destination site needs the
TARGET parameter to do its job.

P.S. I have proposed that we add this meta-data to the Metadata for SAML 1.0
Web Browser Profiles. Prateek and Jeff are the authors of this document.
