Shibboleth has been at the forefront of identity management software since the early 2000s. Since then, academic institutions, identity federations, and commercial organisations around the world have adopted it as their identity solution. But as reliance on Shibboleth products continues to increase, so does the responsibility to keep it open-source and operational. The Shibboleth Consortium generates vital funding to ensure continuity and helps shape the future of the systems.
