Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) integration is viewed as black magic. The mention of SAML among developers often results in blank stares from many and strong emotional responses from others. Visions of complexity and endless documentation dance in their heads. But it doesn't have to be like this. Identity Integration with SimpleSAMLphp is designed to make you a SAML superhero. After reading this book SAML and SimpleSAMLphp will become an important tool in your repertoire. SimpleSAMLphp is the premiere implementation of SAML in the PHP programming language. The book explains important SAML concepts in plain language and presents numerous recipes for exploting SimpleSAMLphp for integrating applications, even non-PHP applications.

Whether you want to connect Google Apps to your corporate directory, connect your application to a SAML identity provider, or bridge Facebook and SAML this book is for you.
