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. Dee had also contacted our conference planners about it
as well. So I got a call from our conference folks asking whether we would be
doing a similar event in Feb since they really need to plan the space, etc.
much more in advance than we did the last time.
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
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
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.
