SAML 2.0 and Microsoft .NET
I am a technical architect currently researching single sign on (SSO) and Microsoft .NET for one of my projects. I have been doing a lot of searching and reading on various internet sites, including yours (lots of information on the standard, by the way, which is great), to try and determine the compatibilities between SAML 2.0 and the Microsoft .NET 2.0 or higher frameworks. I have found some articles indicating that Microsoft may not support the SAML 2.0 standard, which has me very worried. Do you know of any information that you could share that would indicate how to integrate a Microsoft Windows environment with SAML 2.0 whereby I would have a .NET website, running on IIS, that requires authentication that will be supplied by an IDP via a SAML ticket? Do you know of any commercial products that work with IIS to provide SAML based interaction?
