SAML on .NET



Do you use web services?  If you have concerns about interoperability and security, then you probably would like to see SAML support on .NET.  Well here’s something for you.  The Patterns&Practices team at Microsoft have just released a SAML sample that works with .NET 2.0 and WSE 3.0.  They call it the SAML STS for WSE3.0 Quickstart

For those of you who don’t have English as a first language, don’t worry, your eyes are not deceiving you.  Yes, that name is just a bunch of vaguely-related nouns with one pronoun stuck in the middle for good luck.  So forget the name, and listen to what I say:  It is a sample, with source code, for a security token service that supports issuance of SAML v1.1 tokens.


If your answer to that is “Huh?”, then check this picture:


Props to Don Smith, and Jason Hogg.

    I’d just like to point out that "for" is a preposition, not a pronoun.

    Can I get the code somewhere to authenticate using SAML and .net?

    Can I get any sample .net code which implements SAML?
