Usually in Shibboleth, the flow is assumed to be an SP requesting authentication by redirecting the client to the IdP, and then getting back a response. In the original SAML 1.0 and SAML 1.1 standards, though, SSO was described in only semi-interoperable terms as a response from the IdP to the SP, and the "request" portion was left out. This was carried over into SAML 2.0 as a mode called "IdP-initiated" or "unsolicited" SSO.
