Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Developer's Guide

Token Conversion

The Security Token Service is able to convert from one token format to another. For example, an OpenSSO Enterprise SSOToken can be converted to a SAML v2 token or a SAML v1.x token to a SAML v2 token. Token conversion plug-ins can be developed using the token conversion interface in the com.sun.identity.wss.sts package.
