Federations are a natural trust fabric that is useful to simplifying the deployment of Shibboleth by sets of providers involved in common attribute exchange and content protection. They are not required for the use of Shibboleth, but joining federations can greatly simplify interoperability and trust.

The wiki hosts a list of federations or projects involving Shibboleth or SAML technology provided by the Shibboleth project. Each federation typically serves a specific community.
