This document specifies a SAMLv2 lightweight Web Browser Single Sign-On Profile. This profile is modeled on the OASIS SAMLv2 Web Browser SSO profile, adding various constraints, and using a new lighterweight SAMLv2 HTTP POST binding offering an optional signature technique that is more simple-to-implement than the also optional XML Digital Signature approach.
