    Extended description

    Satosa-Saml2 Spid is an intermediary between many SAML2 Service Providers and many SAML2 Identity Providers. Specifically it allows traditional Saml2 Service Providers to communicate with Spid Identity Providers adapting Metadata and AuthnRequest operations to the Spid technical requirements. This solution allows us to adopt multiple proxy frontends and backends to adapt and allows to communicate systems that, due to protocol or specific limitations, traditionally could not interact each other.
