The login method (SAML) runs on your eDirectory Linux Box. I've tested SAML authentication from RBPM 3.7 to a 64-bit eDirectory
running on Linux. We also configured a http proxy for header injection (custom SSO provider in UA/RBPM). Everything worked fine
as long as we didn't have large number of authentications during a small period of time. If the number of connections (SAML
authentications to eDir) were to high eDirectory crashed. We got a fix from engineering for this (the problem was located to the
nmas part, not eDirectory itself). This was over a year ago and I hope the fix is included in one of the later patches for
eDirectory. We don't use the proxy anymore so I can't say if is.

Best regards,
