What is SAML and OAuth 2.0

VMware’s upcoming On-Premise Horizon Application Manager 1.5 supports SAML and OAuth 2.0 for authentication. SInce I had no idea what SAML and OAuth 2.0 was all about I googled a bit and found some nice videos on the subjects.

A VMware paper on Identity, Access Control, and VMware Horizon can be found here


SAML stands for “Security Assertion Markup Language.” It is an XML-based standard for communicating identity information between organizations and the cloud, It is used for enabling the secure transmittal of authentication tokens and other user attributes across cloud domains.
