Cos. Pass SAML 2.0-Interoperability Testing

Liberty Alliance announces first companies to pass full-matrix SAML 2.0 interoperability testing

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Liberty Alliance, the global identity consortium working to build a more trusted Internet for consumers, governments and businesses worldwide, today announced that products from Hewlett-Packard, IBM, RSA, The Security Division of EMC, Sun Microsystems and Symlabs, Inc. have passed Liberty Alliance testing for SAML 2.0 interoperability. These vendors participated in the November 2007 Liberty Interoperable™ event administered by the Drummond Group Inc. and are the first to pass full-matrix testing Liberty Alliance incorporated into its interoperability program this year. All of these vendors also passed Liberty Alliance testing against the US GSA SAML 2.0 profile, meeting the prerequisite interoperability requirements for participating in the US E-Authentication Identity Federation.

“The success of the Liberty Interoperable program is demonstrated by the wide scale deployment of Liberty-enabled products and the increasing number of businesses and governments now requiring vendors to pass Liberty Alliance testing,” said Roger Sullivan, president of the Liberty Alliance Management Board and vice president of Oracle Identity Management. “Organizations worldwide are deploying SAML 2.0-based applications to enable secure new business services, help meet regulatory requirements and provide consumers with better protection against online fraud and identity theft.”

Internet-based and Full-Matrix Testing Drives New Era of Proven Interoperability

Liberty Alliance continually enhances the Liberty Interoperable program to meet cross-industry demands for proven interoperable identity solutions. The November event was the first to conduct Internet-based and full-matrix testing. Internet-based testing allows vendors to participate in the same interoperability event from anywhere in the world. Full-matrix testing requires each vendor to test with every other participant to ensure testing mirrors real word identity federation interoperability requirements. The breadth and depth of these testing procedures provides deploying organizations with assurances that products have proven to interoperate with each other across the widest possible range of deployment scenarios.

During the Internet-testing period held from October 1 – Nov 30, 2007, the following products and services demonstrated interoperability based on a variety of SAML 2.0 conformance modes, including Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP) test modes. A detailed list of what each vendor passed is available on the Liberty Alliance website at http://www.projectliberty.org/liberty_interoperable/interoperable_products/saml_2_0_test_procedure_v3_0_full_matrix_product_table
