Shibboleth 2.4.3 SAML2 and WAYF

Okay, the big question, and what I'm going to try, is to put in the DS

flys.  We are currently using a WAYF, and does the DS simply replace it?

The specification is on the OASIS document site, or more easily found

No, it's orthogonal.

The protocols are simply different. I don't know what you mean by "wayf
