The Shibboleth Project
Effective and reliable identity management software for individual organisations and multi-site federations.
What is Shibboleth?
Shibboleth is one of the most widely used identity management systems in the world. After emerging as an Internet2 middleware activity in 2000, it was quickly adopted by academic institutions, identity federations, and commercial organisations all over the world. 
 
We create products that enable secure and seamless access to protected online resources and applications. With just one identity, a user can securely sign into a variety of systems while keeping management free from the burden of maintaining a collection of usernames and passwords. As an open-source project, all Shibboleth software is free and accessible to all and support is widely available through active community forums.
