Good Day,

The NY Times published an article last week, Symbol of Elite Access: E-Mail to the Chief, about the measures the administration takes to protect Obama's e-mail account.

A Study Guide says the following about SAML -

The security information for exchanging is expressed in the form of assertions about subjects, where a subject is an entity (either human or computer) that has an identity in some security domain. A typical example of a subject is a person, identified by his or her email address in a particular Internet DNS domain.

Therefore, I wonder whether SAML can be applied somehow in such a scenario. Any thoughts?
