Celebrating 10 years of SAML 2.0 at the heart of online identity

The SAML 2.0 protocol celebrates its 10th anniversary on 15th March 2015. This XML (Extensible Markup Language)-based open-standard data format enables the exchange of authentication and authorisation data between identity providers and service providers, and is at the heart of eduGAIN and of research and education identity federations worldwide.

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is a product of the Security Services Technical Committee of OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards). The community voted to approve the SAML 2.0 standard on 1 March 2005, and it achieved its final version two weeks later. Some 30 individuals from almost 30 companies and organisations were involved in the creation of SAML 2.0 and it has seen significant uptake across the globe.
