Hi All,

Can someone suggest an easily available and readily installable SAML token generator. I dont want something as sophisticated as shibboleth, i just want a piece of code that can generate SAML authentication, authorization and attribute tokens.
I am developing an intermediary that understands SAML tokens, no matter what the source is.

Thanks in advance,

apigee, a better way to API!

Welcome to JavaRanch.

WSS4J contains a SAML implementation. It also contains other stuff, but you can ignore that.

Hi Ulf,
Thanks alot for the prompt reply. WSS4J uses openSaml for creating SAML tokens. Actually, i wanted something like an openLdap thingie, wherein i can use a utility to create SAML requests and it can give me back the SAML assertions. (This would mean that the implementation will be a service provider for authentication and authorization.) WSS4j is more of an API, correct me if i am wrong.
I will tell you in detail as to what i need:
I am writing an intermediary that will take request from a third-party (they will be SAML authentication/attribute/authorization assertions). Based on the type of assertions, i may choose to:
1) Post a request to a SAML authorization server(if i received an authentication assertion)
2) Just propogate the authentication info in some other format to my client.
3) Fetch some attributes from a configured server and send it to the client.

So, i need an environment where based on the SAML request i make, i can get SAML assertions.

Hi Nitesh,

Were you able to solve this thread? I am also in the similar requirement.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
