Recently I had to do a implementation of SAML2 within .Net, .Net does not have any native support for SAML2 and as a result I had to approach a 3rd party provider called Component Space. Their support is really first class.
It can often be a problem to trace problems with SAML as WS-Federation. Here are some plugins that I have found that can make your live easier.
Figured that I would start a post dealing specifically with all the terms we find in the Identity world. Ill add to this post as time goes on…
I created a windows forms application sample that can assist with decoding to FedAuth tokens captured from tools like Fiddler, source is included. It is downloadable from this link.
