I just wanted to recommend the terrific SAML Tracer extension for Firefox by Olav Morken at the Norwegian UNINETT, SAML debugging has never been this easy!
It works a bit like Fiddler except it’s simpler and it tags each HTTP request that contains a SAML AuthnRequest or Response. If you mark any of the HTTP Requests marked with the SAML sign you’re able to view the SAML message in clear text.
Check it out here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/saml-tracer/?src=api or check out the press release from UNINETT: https://rnd.feide.no/2011/06/21/uninett-releases-public-beta-of-saml-tracer/
