Subject: Re: [saml-dev] Which version to use?

Dear all,

I would like to thank you for your replies on my email. So the way I 
understand it is that since we are considering new development, not 
integrating with any existing system, we should consider SAML 2.0, as 
it integrates ID-FF specification.

But what about ID-WSF, which in our case, would be the way to go, as 
all communication between application components will be web-service 

Best regards,

Jean-Noel Colin
