Shibboleth 2 Identity Provider Configuration

The Shibboleth 2.0 IdP has a variety of configuration files that control various aspects of its operation. internal.xml combines these files along with services.xml using Spring.

  • attribute-filter.xml: Configures the release of attributes to SP's.
  • attribute-resolver.xml: Attribute naming, transformation, and sourcing.
  • handler.xml: Maps incoming requests to functionality. This is most often modified for user authentication.
  • logging.xml: Determines how the IdP logs events. You might want to use this to debug problems.
  • login.config: Authentication configuration, mostly for Kerberos and LDAP-based logins. You won't modify this if you're using REMOTE_USER.
  • relying-party.xml: All the configuration options for talking to others, including your entityID, metadata you load, and your credentials.

It also relies on configuration of the web environment for some features.
