SAML2 is becoming an industry standard and many vendors are moving to supporting it. Using SAML2 will provide Cognos with another method for external authentication.
SAML2 is an XML-based framework for communicating user authentication, entitlement, and attribute information. As its name suggests, SAML2 allows business entities to make assertions regarding the identity, attributes, and entitlements of a subject (an entity that is often a human user) to other entities, such as a partner company or another enterprise application. SAML2 is a flexible and extensible protocol designed to be used and customized if necessary by other standards.
For the SAML2 protocol specification, see http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/13525/sstc-saml-exec-overview-2.0-cd-01-2col.pdf
There are many organizations using SAML2 for single-sign on capabilities. Higher Education has standardized on Shibboleth Identity Provider (https://shibboleth.net/). IBM is already a member of InCommon (https://www.incommon.org/) so integration of Cognos with SAML2 for authentication would allow IBM to make use of the InCommon membership.
