The document at how to integrate a SHibboleth SAML2 Service Provider with Novell's SAML2 Identity Server.

This cool solution will show you how to add a Shibboleth SP to your NAM implementation using a federated authentication via SAML 2.0. By using SAML 2.0, your users authenticate to NAM as they typically do using their existing LDAP credentials provided by your corporate directory. The Shibboleth SP can consume the SAML assertion and authenticates users without the need to synchronize passwords with the local user store. Once configured, your users will have SSO access to all your web resources protected by NAM through either the Access Gateway or using federation protocols.
