Integrating SAML instead of OpenID

I'm just throwing this out there but I've recently been asked about creating a members area using SAML 2.0 as the sign on. The client has their own LDAP, SAML service that they currently use and have stated that it would be a "nice to have" feature.

Has anyone explored this at all. I would guess it is somewhat similar to OpenID with a few modifications but it is definitely not in my area.

I've briefly looked at simplesamlphp ( and onelogin php saml toolkit ( as a starting point but would appreciate some assistance if anyone has tried.

Did you manage to get this into the marketplace. I did a quick search with no luck.

Did the project fail or got cancelled or don't you have the rights on it to publish it to the Marketplace?

I'm not a fan of SAML2, but a fan of security.
What happened with this?

Sorry for ressurrecting this thread.

Any plans on releasing this into the Marketplace. I will soon be in need of a single sign on solution.
