We’re using GP with SAML/ Shibb in users’ default browser. Like Paul’s experience, there were some sighs and groans from network engineers configuring the PA side, but I provided our normal IdP metadata and importing that did not seem an issue. I did have to remove the encryption key from the GP metadata to stop assertion encryption because GP could not decrypt assertions encrypted with the key they provided. I’d like to fix that, but it was deemed acceptable.

>> We are using SAML auth for our PAN VPN, and I don't recall having to do that. It was an annoying process going back and forth with the network guy setting it up, but in the end it accepted our usual metadata including the default self signed certificate the IDP generated once upon a time when I originally installed it.
>> It's been a while, but I remember vaguely they had to configure it differently than they initially tried. But we definitely did not have to do anything weird on the shibboleth side with the certificate. I wouldn't of done that, PAN would have had to fix their crap or we wouldn't have done SAML.
