Support » Plugin: simpleSAMLphp Authentication » support for mobile apps?

  • Hi there. Great plugin. I installed my first wordpress site on CentOS6 and had SAML integrated, all in under 20 minutes 🙂

    However, it did make me think of what we have already discovered about SAML – it is designed for an outdated model – that web browsers are king. To prove the point I installed the official wordpress for Android app and sure enough, it talks via /xmlrpc.php to wordpress – which isn’t integrated with SAML 🙁

    Officially I guess “we” are supposed to look towards “Delegated Authentication Based Single Sign-On” to solve this – which looks to me like simple handing your password over to SAML SPs – which is sorta what SAML was designed to avoid. Wonderful 🙂

    Anyway, with that rant out of the way, I was wondering if anyone else was thinking along the lines of supporting mobile apps within a SAML environment, and how they handle it?

    Thanks!

    Jason
