- The Shibboleth project began under the Internet2 Middleware Initiative in 1999, connecting with the work of the OASIS SAML Working Group and participating in SAML from its initiation. As a founding member of this effort, Internet2 has been and remains firmly committed to the ongoing development and sustenance of Shibboleth as a critical software component for many campus identity management systems. To help expand the global support and adoption for Shibboleth, the Shibboleth Consortium was founded.
For more information on the Shibboleth Consortium, visit their website at http://shibboleth.net/
An important update was given in 2012 by Internet2 Senior Vice President Shel Waggener regarding Shibboleth, which may be reviewed at http://www.internet2.edu/news/detail/4785/
Shibboleth is participating in the TIER Initiative.
