What is the ADFS API for console-based PCKS11 login? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My goal is to allow console based smartcard PIN auth for an existing AWS/ADFS integration (MFA i.e. multi-factor authorization).

    Normally, you sign on through browser, but same is technically possible only via console I suppose.

    I have found so far two software pieces which implement two parts of my goal, both written in Python.

    1) Authenticate user access to the smartcard


    2) Missing link, the actual purpose of this question: use ADFS API to authenticate user for the SAML protocol

    3) Proceed with SAML based sign in to AWS and get temporary security credentials aka STS credentials.


    So, where to find ADFS API specs for the step 3 above? Is there maybe also a Python SDK for an ADFS client?
