What is Security Assertion Markup Language? 

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)  is an XML-based security specification developed by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) for exchanging authentication (and authorization) information between trusted entities over the Internet.  A framework for exchanging authentication and authorization information.  Security typically involves checking the credentials presented by a party for authentication and authorization.  SAML standardizes the representation of these credentials in an XML format called “assertions,” enhancing the interoperability between disparate applications. A protocol consisting of XML-based request and response message formats for exchanging security information, expressed in the form of assertions about subjects, between online business partners.
