This is only a partial response to your inquiry.
You should research documentations on ADFS (Active Directory
Federation Services) if you have not already done so. I think that
some of the roadmap information has been disclosed in public so
you should look at plans/guidance for aligning with the next release
of ADFS. The present version, released with Windows Server
2003 R2 does support use of SAML, but as you are likely aware
this is a still evolving area, and is only of use for web mediated
federation architectures. Again, that is now.
If you can find roadmap, position papers on ADFS and on the
Microsoft identity management strategy it should become clear
how to align with the present and future releases. From all that
I have seen/heard SAML is very much a part of this roadmap,
as is the entire suite of WS-* webservices architecture, and you
can expect to see these embed as a central part of the architecture.

Hi, At our company we are in the process of redesigning our authentication
services for our web based product. As a part of the requirements we will
supporting NTAuth, Netegrity, LDAP integration along with normal logon for
authentication. The idea is to provide a Single Sign On (SSO) experience
our customers and we are actively looking at using SAML (Security
Markup Language) to achieve this SSO functionality. Since our product is
Microsoft platform based, so we are trying to ascertain if Microsoft is
to support SAML going forward? More specifically, We are looking for
knowledge documents that discusses how Microsoft platform supports SAML in
its current releases and what, if any, are Microsoft plans/strategies for
supporting SAML technology going forward.
Any information would be much appreciated. It would also be a great help
someone can point me to the public documents from Microsoft on supporting
SAML as well as any technical document on the technology w.r.t its feature
support in Microsoft platforms.
