Description Laura Pardo 2018-03-07 21:05:56 UTC
The (deprecated) SAML 1.1 implementation would regard as valid any unsigned SAML response containing more than one signed assertion, provided that the signature of at least one of the assertions was valid, allowing an attacker that could obtain a valid signed assertion from an IdP to impersonate users from that IdP.
