Consume SAML Token RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to SOAP, SAML, Tokens... the whole bit.  And am trying to come up to speed quickly. 

    I am currently developing an application that calls a 3rd party webservice that sends me a SAML assertion.  I need to include the SAML assertion in followup calls to different webservices on the same remote server.  Or the followup calls will fail.

    I am using vb.net 2005 to make the soap call via Windows Soap Extensions (WSE) 3.0.  I am successfully making the 1st call which gives me the SAML Assertion.  But how in the world do I extract the SAML token from the ResponseSoapContext and then insert it into the RequestSoapContext of the next call?

    As a side point... In my opinion this whole SOAP business is far too complicated for the average programmer.  It is ridiculously complex.

    If any of you guru geniuses out there can enlighten me on this I would appreciate it wholeheartedly.

    Thanks in advance.
