The University of Florida's existing home-grown, cookie-based authentication system (GLAuth) has security problems and must be replaced. In addition, the university needs to support federated authentication services for interaction with contracted service providers. Shibboleth has been deployed at the university to replace GLAuth. Eli Ben-Shoshan is the technical lead for this project.

More information about the UF implementation here:

Shibboleth is an Internet2 Middleware Initiative project that has created an architecture and open-source implementation for federated identity-based authentication and authorization infrastructure based on Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Federated identity allows for information about users in one security domain to be provided to other organizations in a federation. This allows for cross-domain single sign-on and removes the need for content providers to maintain user names and passwords. Identity providers (IdPs) supply user information, while service providers (SPs) consume this information and get access to secure content.
