Simple signin’

JeffH is on fire lately. He’s one of the key people, along with Scott Cantor, who have been showing people just how easy it can be to “do SAML”. He put together a short document that explains the best entry points for reading the SAML specifications, and he and Scott have published a new version of their “no XML Signature” SAML binding, now called HTTP POST-SimpleSign. But wait, there’s more: They have also published an Internet-Draft spec that makes use of this binding, called the SAMLv2 Lightweight Web Browser SSO Profile. He’s got more interesting news besides — make sure to check it all out.
