Subject: RSA Interop optional use
Wednesday's call, we ran out of time to discuss any optional use cases for the
RSA Interop demo. The first issue to resolve is if we really want to have
optional use cases. On one hand, these cases will demonstrate that more
functionality is available with SAML V2.0. On the other hand, since all
vendors will not be showing the optional functionality, it may appear that SAML
V2.0 is not a universally agreed upon standard. Plus it involves
additional effort with greater risk.
there is interest in pursuing optional use cases, the following were the
highest ranked in the vendor survey:
- Identity Provider Discovery
- Attribute Query
- Authentication Query
- From the call, a federation/defederation example
was discussed, which would involve extending some of the base use cases
and adding a Name Identifier Management case.
you are interested in implementing an optional use case, please indicate which
would be your preference based on a
of 1 to 4, with 1 being most interested and 4 the least interested.
I will then tabulate these and begin to define
proposal of exactly what the use case would be which we can discuss on the next
call. I recommend only 1 optional case
added due to the time limitations.
