Good News / Bad News: The Sample Applications Look Really Easy!
A client made a fascinating comment to us recently:
· “The good news about Open Source SAML Toolkits is that the Sample Applications look really easy!”
· “The bad news about Open Source SAML Toolkits is…the Sample Applications look really easy!”
The client’s point was a good one:
· The allure of building SAML solutions based on Open Source Toolkits is really tempting. The cost appears low, and it looks easy at first glance.
· The reality is that building SAML solutions based on Open Source Toolkits is really hard.
Many of our clients first spend much longer than they plan trying to build their own SAML solution, prior to becoming one of our customers. From their experience, they grow their conviction for their selection to implement EasyConnect, an Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO) product for SAML 2.0 and SAML 1.1 implementations.
