Subject: [security-services] Any
interest in possible SAML interop at RSA 2005?
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
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
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.
