Shibboleth is one of most commonly used solutions for federations worldwide and connects users to applications within and between organizations.
The open source project provides single sign-on functions based on the standard SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). Consequently, users only have to authenticate themselves once to access several services within a federation. Furthermore, Shibboleth enables web applications to make profound authorization decisions for the individual access to protected online resources in a data protection-friendly way. Thus, Shibboleth is an essential part of Federated Identity & Access Management at DAASI International. Each software component of the Shibboleth system is free and open source.
DAASI International can also extend Shibboleth beyond the standard functionality for you, for example by using plugins. Many customers already rely on a two-factor authentication (2FA). Thanks to plugins that are specifically adapted to customer needs and that are developed by DAASI International, the authentication solution fits perfectly into the given system landscape. Therefore it is irrelevant which policies your IT infrastructure requires for the authentication, so whether your second factor is for example a text message, a smartphone app or a USB key. The Shibboleth experts of DAASI International can efficiently and promptly estimate your requirements.
