Standard/Technology Name: Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) V2.0
Developing Organization:OASIS
Contributor:Sun Microsystems, Inc.

SAML, developed by the Security Services Technical Committee of OASIS, is an XML-based framework for communicating user authentication, entitlement, and attribute information. As its name suggests, SAML allows business entities to make assertions regarding the identity, attributes, and entitlements of a subject (an entity that is often a human user) to other entities, such as a partner company or another enterprise application.
