SAML 2 compatiblity with AS JAVA 7.02 system

Hi All,

While looking for SAML 2 implementation and compatibility for our project I came across the following article: http://sapinsider.wispubs.com/Article/Taking-SSO-to-the-Next-Level--SAP-Supports-User-Identity-Federation-with-SAML-2-0/5295

We are facing the following issue:

1. We are trying to integrate ADFS server to AS JAVA 7.02 system. The ADFS server is only compatible with SAML 2.0

Our Question: Can SAP AS JAVA 7.02 system accept SAML Assertions sent by SAML 2 compatible IDP and SP

2. If not, please suggest a alternative way where we can achieve the same, where SAML 2 can be implemented for older SAP NW versions ( older that 7.2 AS JAVA versions)

Any comments/ suggestions to implement the same are welcome

Regards,

Shinjinee Santra

    Hi,

    SAML as any other XML based standard is really broad. There are multiple options and not all options are supported by every vendor. I would start with [SAP documentation|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp2/helpdata/EN/94/695b3ebd564644e10000000a114084/frameset.htm]. There is a list of missing features. There might be also OSS note dedicated to this problem. I think SAP has passed some kind of interoperability testing with other vendors. So my guess is that 7.02 is capable of accepting SAML ticket.

    Cheers

    Hi Shinjinee Santra,

    AS Java 7.02 does not support SAML 2.0. It may be interesting for you to check the SAML 2.0 wiki page [Single Sign-On with SAML 2.0|http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/Security/SingleSign-OnwithSAML2.0] and also [Step-by-Step guide for SSO from MS Sharepoint 2010 to SAP EP 7.0x|http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/Security/Step-by-StepguideforSSOfromMSSharepoint2010toSAPEP+7.0x]

    Best regards,
