CVE-2021-3196: XML Signature Wrapping Attack (XSW) issue
When using federated identity management (authenticating via SAML through a third-party identity provider), an attacker injects additional data into a signed SAML response being transmitted to the service provider (Hitachi ID Bravura Security Fabric).
