Shibboleth and IdP

Posted on 2014-08-26

I downloaded Shibboleth IdP, and it can be configured for LDAP

I am confused on a small point.  Is the Shibboleth IdP actually a IDP, or is the LSAP that it points to the IDP

What would be correct terminology ?

    Shibboleth is still the IdP because IdP is a SAML term and it is Shibboleth that is providing the SAML functionality. If you are looking just to get your terminology right, you would say that Shibboleth IdP is then "delegating" the access/management of the users to LDAP.
