Shibboleth 1.0 Released

The Shibboleth Project – Internet2 Middleware has released the first production version of Shibboleth — (cool name, eh?).This project is..

“..developing architectures, policy structures, practical technologies, and an open source implementation to support inter-institutional sharing of web resources subject to access controls. In addition, Shibboleth will develop a policy framework that will allow inter-operation within the higher education community.”

I first saw this demonstrated last winter — with a WebCT-Shibboleth – Web Assign – OSU libraries (I think) project – see it at:

Pretty exciting stuff… being able to pass from system to system, without having to reauthenticate. This type of functionality will be important to our intra-and inter-institutional efforts (like the Integrated Lab networks!).

Now all I have to do is understand how it works…

Wait… somebody here with technical wizardry has to understand how this works! I just NEED it to work!
