So you need a SP (Service Provider) implementation in Java to talk with an IdP (like Shibboleth)?

Or are you talking about writing an IdP plug-in to do the actual authentication?

Subject: request IdP assertions from java

I'm extremely new to this sso, shibboleth, IdP, SP, etc. etc. things. So I thought to ask the experts :). I have to integrate our software with shibboleth (only the IdP part of it). For this I need to create some sort of PAM to access the IdP and receive the assertions. Now, I need a few guidelines about how the communication between the java code and IdP should be done. More specifically, what a request should contain and where that request should be sent on the IdP in order to obtain an assertion about the user.
