Identity Management: Lightweight SAML for Less Processing Power

By Mohammed Ali Tarek S. Sobh Salwa El-Gamal

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Mar. 2015

Identity management has emerged as important issue for reducing complexity and improving user experience when accessing services. In addition to, recently authentication services added SAML to the range of authentication options to be available to cloud subscriber. This work mainly focused on SAML representation in the existing identity management frameworks and its suitability.
We introduced a new representation of SAML that makes it light in weight and easier in parsing and dealing with. This representation is demonstrated using JSON.
In our new SAML representation, we enhanced the performance of marshalling the SAML by 28.99%.
In this paper, we will go into these challenges to introduce a new representation for the identity and access management markup language. Our proposed representation is designed to match the small processing power devices for faster generation, parsing and communication.
