Metadata certificate extract

Extract certificates from SAML and WS-Federation Metadata

Metadata often contains encryption and signing certificates and often it is the same certificate.

Encryption certificate: The encryption certificate is used to encrypt the assertion (<EncryptedAssertion> element) thereby hidding the issued claims.
Signing certificate: The signing certificate is used to sign the messages thereby securing that the content can't be altered without being discovered.

You can see the details of the certificates and download them as .cer files (PEM format). Read more about PEM format at Wikipedia: PEM format

Metadata doesn't contain any certificates!
