SAML V1.0 became an OASIS standard in November 2002. SAML V1.1 followed in September 2003 and has seen significant success, gaining momentum in financial services, higher education, government, and other industry segments. SAML has been broadly implemented by all major Web access management vendors. SAML support also appears in major application server products and is commonly found among Web services management and security vendors. SAML V2.0 builds on that success.
