Standards interoperability and actual business needs intersect in this demonstration -- driven from the inside out by real business initiatives of the GSA. This unique teaming of the GSA with eleven vendors showcases interoperability across three separate scenarios, simulating interaction between a government or enterprise portal and sites from typical content or service providers. For the first time ever, members of the OASIS Security Services Technical Committee will demonstrate both types of SAML version 1.1 Single Sign-On, along with additional scenarios that highlight SAML's flexibility. The event is sponsored by the U.S. GSA E-Authentication Initiative, which is committed to delivering open standards-based authentication solutions to U.S. government agencies.
