RADIUS and SAML: Integrating Network Authentication and Attribute Exchange
Time 12/05/06 03:00PM-04:00PM
There have been a variety of proposals made towards applying an attribute exchange framework to network authentication in order to allow new possibilities for implementing policy. The Shibboleth system uses SAML Assertions to implement Web SSO; this session will consider the work necessary to extend the RADIUS infrastructure to use SAML assertions. The focus will be on the viability of such an integration, and the trust infrastructures that must be combined to make it work. We will also discuss details of how to combine these infrastructures and what the problems with such an integration are.
