Shib1 SessionInitiator

Advanced Configuration

Note, this is an advanced configuration feature. Most deployments can rely on the <SSO> shorthand element.

Indicated by type="Shib1", this initiator supports Shibboleth 1.x authentication requests, an extension of the SAML 1.1 standard. As a protocol handler, an entityID must be specified/known, which is then used to check for metadata with an <md:IDPSSODescriptor> role supporting Shibboleth 1.x. The absence of either causes a warning to be logged and the handler otherwise ignores the request.

A "supporting" IdP's role element has a protocolSupportEnumeration attribute containing the value "urn:mace:shibboleth:1.0", with an accompanying <md:SingleSignOnService> with a Binding of "urn:mace:shibboleth:1.0:profiles:AuthnRequest".
