With the 10.1.4.2 patch set release, Oracle Identity Federation provides:

a new command-line tool designed to perfom bulk delete operations of federation records from the Federation Data Store
the ability to configure how Oracle Identity Federation responds when an error occurs in the logout flow
a mechanism for requiring a client SSL certificate for all SOAP requests
the no-fail-on-error option during Liberty 1.x/SAML 2.0 logout flow processing

the ability to configure SAML 2.0 Authentication Query Response and Assertion ID Request
The following new topics have been added to the Oracle Identity Federation Administrator's Guide:
The following instructions have been updated:
Several terms that were previously used to describe Oracle Identity Federation or Oracle SHAREid features are no longer in use with release 10.1.4.2:
SmartMaps - If a SHAREid SP could not map an incoming SSO assertion to a local user, the SmartMaps interface could be used to create a new user.
This is not a supported feature in Oracle Identity Federation and the term is not used.
SmartWalls - This was a best practice related to mapping an incoming SSO assertion to a user. SmartWalls was intended to thwart a user from one IdP from impersonating a user from another IdP by falsely asserting attributes for that user.
As a rule, SAML 2.0 and Liberty do not use attribute mapping; instead they use opaque name identifiers that are not susceptible to this problem. The term SmartWalls has been replaced by "local user mapping".
SmartMarks - This concept has been superseded in SAML 2.0 with the implementation of the SP-initiated IdP discovery using common domain cookies. While the feature is still applicable in the context of SAML 1.x, from now on it is referred to as SP-initiated IdP discovery.
