-- About the COSs --

SAML, from the Security Services (SAML) TC [1], is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider.

The Metadata Interoperability Profile v1.0 describes a set of rules for SAML metadata producers and consumers to follow such that federated relationships can be interoperably provisioned, and controlled at runtime in a secure, understandable, and self-contained fashion.

The Metadata Extensions for Login and Discovery User Interface v1.0 define a set of extensions to SAML metadata that provide information necessary for user agents to present effective user interfaces and, in the case of identity provider discovery, recommend appropriate choices to the user.

The TC has received 3 Statements of Use from the Shibboleth Consortium, Internet2, and SUNET [2].
