Allows WordPress to pass user authentication, account creation, and permissions to a Shibboleth Service Provider / Shibboleth Identity Provider.
This plugin is designed to support integrating WordPress sites into your existing identity management infrastructure using a Shibboleth Service Provider / Identity Provider.
This plugin was initially based off of the Shibboleth Plugin by Will Norris, but updated to support network-based installations of WordPress, as well as the ability to update permissions on a per-site basis.
WordPress can be configured so that all standard login requests will be sent to your configured Identity Provider. Once authenticated, a WordPress account will be created if one does not exist. User attributes can be synchronized with your enterprise's system.
In addition, the user's role within each WordPress site, as well as the role of Super Admin, can be set and updated based on any attribute Shibboleth provides.
