Using SAML between Portal, ESB and backend systems of record

I am new to SAML.

We have a portal where users are authenticated. We have to pass users credentials using SAML to the ESB layer which inturn passes it to our backend systems like SAP, Siebel etc. 

These systems would authenticate the user based on their credentials and the SAML token and return the requested data back to the ESB which passes it onto the portal for presentation. 

Can anyone give me an idea on how to get started on this? 

Portal is Oracle Weblogic, ESB is Progress Sonic in our case.
