The Shibboleth Consortium
Protecting and progressing Shibboleth software thanks to funding raised through membership fees
What is the Consortium?
The Consortium is responsible for the financial, technical and strategic management of the Shibboleth Project. With global reliance increasing year on year, we founded the Consortium to ensure the reliability and longevity of the software.
This requires considerable effort from developers and Shibboleth experts remain few and far between. Our exceptional members recognise this value, and their memberships are both a tribute to and reason for Shibboleth’s continued success.
How we got started
Realising that Shibboleth needed a formal means of financial support, Jisc, Internet2 and SWITCH became our Principal Members by establishing the Shibboleth Consortium in 2013.
