The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) has found its usage on
the Internet for Web Single Sign-On.  The Simple Authentication and
Security Layer (SASL) and the Generic Security Service Application
Program Interface (GSS-API) are application frameworks to generalize
authentication.  This memo specifies a SASL mechanism and a GSS-API
mechanism for SAML 2.0 that allows the integration of existing SAML
Identity Providers with applications using SASL and GSS-API.  
[STANDARDS-TRACK]

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
