Identity Provider support/generic refactoring

Jun 16, 2014 at 8:39 AM
In discussion https://saml2.codeplex.com/discussions/535803 you say that using the source code for an identity provider is out of scope for this project. But would you be open/interested if someone added this on his own and supply it as a pull request? I am currently working on a PoC/PoT for the dutch government for a new identity scheme (eID http://www.eid-stelsel.nl/snelbuttons/english/) and added IdP support into the source code. My plan is when I am done with the PoC/PoT to clean it up a bit and supply the changes as pull requests but if you aren't interested I will not spend my precious time into cleaning up the code ect. and making pull requests.

I actually don't have access to an IDP anymore, so I don't have a good way to test major changes right now... Which is a perfect argument for adding this support.

I'd be interested in seeing your changes. I'd prefer any feature additions be segregated from refactoring stuff unless absolutely necessary, just to keep the commit history clean.

This would probably grow out into a sample IDP and SP project in the solution which could be used for testing, etc.

Just in case, if you have access to a server that is member of an AD domain with administrative rights on it you can always install ADFS 2.0 and configure it as SAML 2.0 IdP, it's easy to install and works very well.
