Shibboleth

Software: The SSO solution for research and education and the InCommon Federation

The Shibboleth component of the InCommon Trusted Access Platform is the lynchpin that securely authenticates identities within the InCommon Federation. It is a single sign-on (SSO) solution that allows management to make informed authorization decisions in a privacy-preserving manner.

Shibboleth is among the world’s most widely deployed federated identity solutions, connecting users to applications both within and between organizations. The Shibboleth components are open source and, while initially developed by Internet2, are now maintained by the international Shibboleth Consortium.
