Below is the documentation available for V3 of the Shibboleth Identity Provider, including all 3.x patch and minor upgrade releases. Documentation is split up in to two parts: documentation meant for individuals that are deploying and managing an Identity Provider and documentation meant for individuals that are developing custom extensions for the Identity Provider.

The Identity Provider V3 product is now unsupported. The V4 Identity Provider software has its own documentation space.

All software, including archived releases, is available from https://shibboleth.net/downloads/identity-provider/ and each release is accompanied by a detached PGP signature using one of the keys listed in the project's PGP_KEYS file.

All our software is licensed under the Apache 2.0 open source software license.

High-level information to get started with SAML and Shibboleth can be found in the Concepts wiki space.
