"miniOrange provides a ready to use solution for Identity and Access Management using miniOrange modules/server for Shibboleth SAML IDP."
Shibboleth is a standards based, open source software for web single sign-on across or within organizational boundaries. It allows sites to make informed authorization decisions for individual access of protected online resources in a privacy-preserving manner.
Shibboleth supports SSO via many federation identity authentication protocols but it does not support some of the protocols like Open ID Connect, OAuth 2.0, WS-FED etc. The lack of admin interface makes it hard to configure and deploy SSO for anyone who doesn’t have technical knowledge about shibboleth. Every day a new cloud app is emerging for different user need. These days companies need to single sign-on into a variety of apps for their organizational needs. For this we need to support protocols like OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect, WS-FED, etc for federated authentication and authorization.
Shibboleth provides a way to integrate different custom modules to improve user experience and functionality on top of the basic features. These modules install directly on top of existing Shibboleth setup to extend functionality. miniOrange modules for Shibboleth have added functionalities which provides a complete package for identity and access management along with customized requirements such as two factor authentication, social login and so on.
