I know that this is a dumb question, but could you explain how the WS-*
specs relate to SAML?  Is the SAML functionality in WS-* somewhere, so
that the specs are incompatible?  Or does WS-* operate in a different
space and interact with SAML somehow?

Subject: FYI: IBM/MSFT whitepaper on secure, reliable, transacted Web

This whitepaper documents the Web services platfrom from IBM/MSFT's


You may need to join the lines assuming SMTP breaks it up. The paper is
available somewhere on the MSFT site as well.

I personally think its a nice document that explains the role of the key
WS-* specs that IBM/MSFT/others have published in supporting the
business requirements of secure, reliable, transacted interactions. Of
course I'm not exactly unbiased in my view; YMMV.
