OASIS Federated Identity Lab Demonstrates SAML 2.0 Interoperability for GSA E-Gov's E-Authentication Initiative

Computer Associates, DataPower Technology, Entrust, Hewlett-Packard Company, Oracle, RSA Security, Sun Microsystems, and Others Showcase Authentication and Authorization Standard at RSA Conference

San Francisco, CA, USA; 2005 RSA Conference; 15 February 2005 -- Thirteen vendors from around the world teamed with the U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) E-Gov E-Authentication Initiative to demonstrate interoperability of the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0, a security specification developed by the OASIS standards consortium. SAML enables secure exchange of authentication, attribute, and authorization information between disparate security domains, making secure Internet e-business transactions possible.

The OASIS Federated Identity InterOp Lab, co-sponsored by GSA E-Authentication Initiative, Enspier, and RSA Security, demonstrated a combination of web single sign-on, and single logout scenarios.

"SAML 2.0 brings together SAML 1.x, Liberty Alliance and Shibboleth functionality to provide a logical convergence point for new products and deployments in the coming months," said Dan Blum, Senior Vice President and Research Director, Burton Group. "This OASIS InterOp demonstration offers an important proof-of-concept for the new specification."

According to Stephen Timchak, GSA Program Executive, "The E-Authentication Initiative is committed to helping drive the evolution of federated identity management, and that's why we are excited to sponsor the OASIS Federated Identity InterOp on SAML 2.0 at RSA 2005. I believe that the E-Authentication-sponsored SAML 1.1 interoperability event at last year's RSA conference helped speed the evolution of the SAML standard, and we look forward to being enthusiastic adopters SAML 2.0 when it qualifies for inclusion in the E-Authentication architecture.

Vendors Collaborate on SAML Interoperability
