Deployment Example: SAML v2 Using Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 is designed to highlight the following key features:
All instances of OpenSSO Enterprise are deployed behind a load balancer for high-availability.
Instances of OpenSSO Enterprise acting as an identity provider are configured to work with instances of Sun Java™ System Directory Server configured as the user data store.
XML Signing is enabled for all SAML v2 protocols.
The SAML v2 URL end points are exposed through load balancers with SSL termination and regeneration configuration.
A web policy agent and a J2EE policy agent are deployed in front of the service provider instances of OpenSSO Enterprise; the policy agents work in single sign-on mode only.
