Subject: RE: [security-services] Any interest in possible SAML interop at RSA 2005?
Computer Associates would be interested in participating.
Definitely can demo SAML 1.1 and interested in possibly 2.0. The idea of a combined demonstration showing facets of SAML 1.1 and 2.0, supplied by the vendors that supply supporting product that support these respective versions of SAML sounds even more interesting, but the idea of working a scenario or set of scenarios is what I am looking to solve.

This may seem like quite a ways off, but in mid-Feb, RSA
will hold their RSA 2005 conference. I got mail from Dee Shur at OASIS
recently stating that she’d been asked whether we might hold another such
event at the next conference.
The 2004 event was a huge success with about a dozen vendors participating with SAML 1.1 solutions and the booth was very well attended. It was also sponsored by the GSA eGov program.
So… I’d like to hear back from anyone that thinks this would be a good idea and whether they’d be interested. Feel free to respond on the list or privately if you’d prefer.
Obviously, the first question that comes up is whether we would demo SAML 1.1 again or whether there will be enough SAML 2.0 implementations to demo it instead? Or perhaps we’d want to figure out how to work both in somehow. I‘d be interested in your input on these questions.
If you could, our conference planners need an indication of our interest fairly soon. I’d appreciate hearing back from you in the next week.
