WIF : Wrappers around protocols

Put together this diagram:

So what does this show:

WIF = WS-Fed
OWIN = WS-Fed, OpenID Connect, OAuth

There is no official Microsoft support for SAML-P (P for protocol). There are open source libraries and commercial stacks - refer : SAML : SAML connectivity / toolkit.

Just to repeat - WIF and OWIN are not protocols - they are wrappers around protocols.
