Liberty Alliance Publishes SAML 2.0 Interoperability Testing Matrix

Liberty Alliance announced that products from Hewlett-Packard, IBM, RSA (The Security Division of EMC), Sun Microsystems, and Symlabs, Inc. have passed Liberty Alliance testing for SAML 2.0 interoperability. SAML Version 2.0 was approved as an OASIS Standard in March 2005. Products and services passing SAML 2.0 interoperability testing included: Hewlett-Packard's HP Select Federation 7.0; IBM's Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, version 6.2; RSA's Federated Identity Manager 4.0; Sun Microsystems' Java System Federated Access Manager 8.0; Symlabs Inc's Federated Identity Suite version 3.3.0. The vendors participated in the November 2007 Liberty Interoperable event administered by the Drummond Group Inc. and are the first to pass full-matrix testing Liberty Alliance incorporated into its interoperability program this year. All of these vendors also passed Liberty Alliance testing against the US GSA SAML 2.0 profile, meeting the prerequisite interoperability requirements for participating in the US E-Authentication Identity Federation. Liberty Alliance continually enhances the Liberty Interoperable program to meet cross-industry demands for proven interoperable identity solutions. The November event was the first to conduct Internet-based and full-matrix testing. Internet-based testing allows vendors to participate in the same interoperability event from anywhere in the world. Full-matrix testing requires each vendor to test with every other participant to ensure testing mirrors real word identity federation interoperability requirements. The breadth and depth of these testing procedures provides deploying organizations with assurances that products have proven to interoperate with each other across the widest possible range of deployment scenarios.
