Implementing a SAML client in Python

0 votes
I want to integrate a web site written in Python with an existing SAML based authentication service. As much as I know about SAML, I have learnt that the IdP (which already exists in this scenario) will send an XML document (via browser post) to the Service Provider (which I am implementing). The Service Provider will need to parse this XML and verify the identity of the user.

So is there any existing Python library for the same?

I know you are looking for a Python-based solution but there are quite a few "server" based solutions that would potentially solve your problem as well and require few ongoing code maintenance issues. For example, using the Apache or IIS Integration kits in conjunction with the PingFederate server from www.pingidentity.com would allow you to pretty quickly and easily support SAML 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, WS-Fed and OpenID for your SP Application.
