Shibboleth is a standards based, open source software package for web single sign-on across or within organisational boundaries. It allows sites to make informed authorisation decisions for individual access of protected online resources in a privacy-preserving manner.
The Shibboleth software implements widely used federated identity standards, principally the OASIS Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), to provide a federated single sign-on and attribute exchange framework. A user authenticates with his or her organisational credentials, and the organisation (or identity provider) passes the minimal identity information necessary to the service provider to enable an authorisation decision. Shibboleth also provides extended privacy functionality allowing a user and their home site to control the attributes released to each application.
