The SourceID Federated Identity Management Framework tracks the following protocols and standards:
|SAML 1.x|| |
SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML framework for exchanging authentication and authorization information. It is a foundation of the Liberty Protocol.
Version 1.1 of SAML makes some minor changes, most notably in the area of support for digital signatures on assertions.
|Liberty ID-FF 1.1||The Liberty Protocol's goal is to create specifications that incorporate, leverage and support other industry standards, allowing members and organizations to build products and services that will interoperate and promote secure federated identity management.|
|Liberty ID-FF 1.2||Version 1.2 of the Liberty ID-FF Protocol extends ID-FF 1.1 to add several requested features,and to allow for the Identity Web Services Framework, Permission-Based Attribute Sharing, Interaction Services, and more.|
|SAML 2.0||Version 2.0 of SAML is a major overhaul of the SAML protocol, message format and bindings. It takes into account the experience of both SAML implementors and of SAML extensions, such as the Liberty ID-FF 1.2 and Shibboleth protocols.|
|WS-Federation(Draft)||This specification defines mechanisms to allow different security realms to federate by allowing and brokering trust of identities, attributes, authentication between participating Web services.|
