SQLData SAML Server
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a XML based protocol for
exchanging security decisions between trusted partners. For instance,
authentication and authorization decision made by one security provider can be
valid at another service provider through a prearranged agreement. SAML is
considered the foundation for federated identity management and single sign-on (SSO)
of web applications/services.
SQLData SAML implementation has three major parts:
- SAML Services: This is the service provider that constructs and delivers
SAML assertions. SAML statements implemented include SubjectStatement,
AuthenticationStatement, AttributeStatement and
- SAML Client: This is a COM object that is capable of performing SAML queries
and deserialize results. The component supports all queries, including
SubjectQuery, AuthenticationQuery, AttributeQuery and
AuthorizationDecisionQuery. It makes an SAML query as easy as a function
- Security Provider API: This is an API that allows SAML services to
interface with a security provider. Note that SAML defines how decisions are
delivered from one point to another, but it doesn't define how the decisions
are made. The Security Provider API allows use of existing security
infrastructure to make such decisions.
