Subject: OASIS SAML 2.0 Interop at RSA Conference 2-2005
We are writing to gauge your interest in participating in an exciting opportunity to showcase your federated identity management solutions. Following the success of last year’s event, a number of parties have expressed initial interest in pursuing an OASIS-sponsored SAML 2.0 Interop lab at next year’s RSA Conference, to be held February 14-18, 2005, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
We consider last year’s event to have been extremely successful based on the media and analyst responses, and the constant traffic and interest the Interop Lab generated during the two days it was open.
This year, the Lab will showcase interoperability in real-life use cases between vendors delivering federated identity solutions built around the SAML 2.0 specification. Space at the conference is being underwritten primarily by the U.S. General Services Administration’s eAuthentication Initiative, with additional contributions by Enspier and RSA Security. Participants may incur a nominal fee of $250-500 to cover any additional costs. The final cost per participant will be determined by various factors including the number of InterOp Participants and participant equipment needs.
Please reply to Andy Moir (email@example.com) to identify your level of interest and preparedness by answering the following questions:
· What is your level of interest in participating in the SAML 2.0 Lab (high, medium, low)?
· How confident are you in having product based on the SAML 2.0 specification available for interop testing during the event (note: a trial run will likely be held before the actual event)?
· If you are not interested in participating in the SAML 2.0 Interop Lab, are there other Interop Labs you might be interested in participating in?
We look forward to having your contribution to this very exciting event.
