Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Developer's Guide


The SPAccountMapper interface is used on the service provider side to map user accounts in cases of single sign-on and federation termination. The default implementation, com.sun.identity.saml2.plugins.DefaultSPAccountMapper, supports mapping based on the transient and persistent NameID attributes, and attribute federation based on properties defined in the extended metadata configuration file. The user mapping is based on information passed from the identity provider in an <AttributeStatment>.
