Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Federation and SAML Administration Guide

Name Registration Protocol

The optional Name Registration Protocol is used by the service provider to create its own opaque handle to identify a principal when communicating with the identity provider.

Note –

The handle discussed in this section is not related to the opaque handle that is generated by the identity provider during federation as defined in Single Sign-On and Federation Protocol. The Name Registration Protocol can, however, be used by the identity provider to change the opaque handle that it registered with the service provider during initial federation.
