The Shibboleth Consortium is the main vehicle for managing the funding and formal community input for the Shibboleth Project, the open source project responsible for the technical output of the Consortium.

Most of this (public) material is of an older nature and is available in varying forms at

If Shibboleth doesn't do all that you need it to do, chances are that it's because of the limited resources the project has to continue its work.

Like all open source projects, Shibboleth can only operate so long as adequate funding is available from the thousands of organizations using the software for free. If you're one of those organizations, please consider joining the Consortium and funding the project.
