Correction: E-Authn supports SAML V1.1 Browser/Artifact and now
supports SAML V2.0 Web Browser SSO with HTTP POST Binding.  SAML V1.1
Browser/Artifact is deprecated (i.e., will be phased out).

[Begin Comment]

It is interesting to note the justification for switching from HTTP
Artifact to HTTP POST:

Advantages of [POST] binding include:
- Simple to implement (e.g. no firewall reconfigurations required, no
mutual TLS);
- More scalable because HTTP POST is stateless (i.e., Having no
information about what
occurred previously) and requires fewer hardware resources; and
- Faster and less expensive to deploy than SAML Artifact based binding
