To connect or not to connect

By Andrew Pollack on 10/14/2013 at 06:30 PM EDT

I am considering a change in my earlier decision to skip "Connect" this year, and instead submit a session proposal around SAML and other Single Sign-On techniques and technologies. I've done a lot of work with this and written my own SAML stack for Domino at one point, so I do have the information. 

I'm curious to hear (privately) any thoughts anyone in my Yellowsphere crowd thinks about this as I've not yet made my decisions. I'm still a more than bit angry about last year, but I realize that is largely directed toward a source that is no longer relevant.

There is of course, no particular reason to assume such a submission would be accepted; however I would not submit unless I intended to go if it were.

I would be there to listen to your session. So that is at least 1 person in the
room. But I think many people would be interested in a in depth session on this

Hi Andrew,

I would be there for your session ! Actually, we're looking for someone with
that skills to assist us in on of our projects ;-).

@Heiko, implementing your own SAML stack or get Domino SAML working? I might be
able to help you with the second part and we should talk offline of the current
feedback we have from customers in SAML implementation workshops.

@Andrew, I think we need a SAML session at IBM Connect!
We should have a show and tell session for implementing SAML at the conference!
I think I am not submitting any sessions this year but already booked flight
and hotel ..

Update, checked with Heiko offline. Really sounds like Andrew is a good match.
Heiko is not looking for SAML Domino implementations in his case.

Thank you, Daniel. I think that just making Domino "work" with SAML isn't
really all that hard if by "work" you stick with a fairly narrow definition.
The thing is that SAML is very rich and very complex and there is a lot that
should be understood before jumping into it. A "show and tell" is probably
not the best way for me to do that.

Andrew & Daniel --- you both should throw your knowledge together and go for a
SAML / Authentication related session @Connect14 ; I can not think of any
better team than you both.

I would be happy to hear details about your SAML experience!
re: To connect or not to connectBy Mike McP on 10/15/2013 at 08:20 AM EDT
We're looking at implementing SAML to authenticate Domino against our AD
infrastructure. I'd definitely attend.
Please doBy Mike Wissinger on 10/15/2013 at 03:38 PM EDT
This is my year to go in the company cycle, and I'd definitely attend a session
on SAML and other SSO options.
re: To connect or not to connectBy Rene Thorarinsson on 10/18/2013 at 07:40 AM EDT
Please do submit this session. I would be very interested in your experience
with SAML and also SSO in a langer scale based on SAML. Can SAML do SSO between
Domino, Windows and web..?
