We just released the Windows Access Connector Sample Code. It provides an implementation framework of the SAML based security SPI. A customized authentication and authorization implementation can be provided as simple as a single class, where the rest of the communication with the appliance has already been handled. It gives a solid implementation of the abstract SAML protocol.
This Access Connector also provides sample code to do Windows Integrated Authentication using the Google Search Appliance SAML SPI. It is now included as the default security implementation of this sample code. It uses the features provided by Windows kerberos extension to allow authenticated domain users to search secure intranet documents seamlessly.
Take a look and let us know what you think. The project is open source and available from our Enterprise developer site at http://code.google.com/enterprise.
