Collection of tools used by developers working with SAML and WS-Federation.
No matter if you are working with Microsoft AD FS, Safewhere Identify, Thinktecture IdentityServer or similar federation products,
you often end up using different small tools to help you in your doing.
With this website, I try to collect all these tools in one place.
