Shibboleth is an open source software product for identity management, authentication, authorization, and access control. Shibboleth implements SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). It consists of three functional parts:
  • the identity provider (IdP): This component is associated with the institutional identity and access management resources and is used to manage user authentication sessions and supply attributes bound to the user to service providers for authorization.
  • the service provider (SP): This component is bound to the web service or server that is implementing access control.
  • the browser: The client is normally a web browser although SAML does support enhanced clients and proxies.
