IDP Initiated SSO request
I am new to SAML and Spring Security.
I am trying to integrate with a 3rd party vendor. The requirement is that I act as the IDP, and initiate the SSO request.
The documentation seems to indicate that it supports an IDP initiated SSO, but as far as I can tell the document only discusses the extension in terms of functioning as a Service Provider.
Should I be using this library for building and sending the SAML assertion? If yes, can you get me started?
Thanks in advance,

This component is currently meant for creation of SAML enabled Service Providers only. While it's certainly possible to extend it to act as an IDP you might prefer to use and customize e.g. Shibboleth which should get you to the goal faster.
