Subject: Re: [security-services] Question regarding SAML usage
John,To expand a bit on this answer, we don't keep authoritative statistics or track SAML usage beyond what deployers happen to volunteer to us.
There is indeed widespread deployment of SAML within the education and research spaces. This includes some major players in the health sciences, e.g. university hospitals and the National Institutes of Health, for starters.
There has also been a healthcare standard developed by David Staggs of the VA within the SSTC, the technical committee responsible for SAML.
http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/xspa/v1.0/saml-xspa-1.0-os.htmlOther industries (e.g. the MLS) have made SAML 2.0 an outright, explicit standard. In others, it is an implicit standard, and it is often used for pairwise corporate relationships.
Many major SaaS and PaaS vendors feature SAML 2.0 support.Hopefully this is enough general background to help you make an informed decision. If you have a more focused question, we might be able to refer you to a more focused answer.
Thanks for your interest in SAML, Nate. On Feb 7, 2012, at 8:40 , Leif Johansson wrote:

You'll have to dig a bit but there are stats for number of users, services and idps in there.This stuff is 99.9% SAML today.
