Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)

SAML is an XML-based standard for exchanging user identity and security attributes (tokens). In a typical usage scenario, a user requests access to secure web services by authenticating to a security domain and requesting that an identity provider (IdP), such as IBM Security Verify Access, issue SAML assertions to the provider of the services based on information.
