Parse a SAML assertion


I want to parse a SAML assertion from an Identity Provider and use some
of the data for identity injection. Anyway, the java identity injection
plug-in can not access the SAML assertion, it can only access the
username and password using the ExternalDataFillerContext object.

Is it possible to extend tha authentication class to parse the SAML
assertion and write out the data to the customisation profile? Which
method or property returns the SAML assertion?

Thank you,

Alessandro

Re: Parse a SAML assertion


The assertions are not stored on the session. It is little confusing
when you say you want to parse a SAML assertion from authentication
class. Usually, after authentication is done (after authentication class
finished exectuing), the response will be generated by the IDP and
assertion cration is part of the response.

Can you please give details of your use case ?

Regards,
Uma.

Re: Parse a SAML assertion


Hi. Thanks for the answer.

I have two federated domains. The user requests a resource on domainA
and he's redirected to IdpA for authentication. The user authenticate on
IdpB and returns back. At this point I need to extract some info from
the SAML assertion returned by IdpB.

Do you think it's possible?

Thanks,

Alessandro

Re: Parse a SAML assertion


It is not possible to do this using authentication class. Assertions are
not stored on the sessions and hence you will not have access to them.
