A new Liberty/SAML opensource project: ZXID

A new Liberty / SAML opensource project has just emerged — ZXID.org — with an emphasis on embedding the identity functionality in the “application layer” and supporting Perl and PHP.

From the web page:

ZXID project has currently (Aug 2006) three outputs

  • libzxid
    • A C library for supporting SAML 2.0, including federated Single Sign-On
  • zxid
    • A C program that implements a SAML Service Provider (SP) as a CGI script
  • Net::SAML
    • A Perl module wrapping libzxid. Also zxid.pl, that implements SP in mod_perl environment, is supplied.

There’s a bunch more information in the PDF readme file.

Check it out.
