The document at how to integrate a Shibboleth SAML2 Identity Server with a Novell SAML2 Service Provider using the SAML2 protocol.

This document describes a SAML2 SP-initiated SSO exchange between a Novell Access Manager 3.1 SAML2 Service Provider (SP) and a Shibboleth SAML2 Identity Provider (IdP). Within this exchange, the user attempts to access a resource on the SP. Since the user has no active session on this SP, the user is asked to login and selects to do so via the IdP server which is references in the SAML trust relationship. As a result, the user is sent to the IdP server to login and the IdP, once the users credentials are validated, provides a SAML web SSO assertion for the user's federated identity back to the SP.
