This plugin is designed to support integrating your WordPress or WordPress MU
blog into your existing identity management infrastructure using a
Shibboleth Service Provider.
WordPress can be configure so that all standard login requests will be sent to
your configured Shibboleth Identity Provider or Discovery Service. Upon
successful authentication, a new WordPress account will be automatically
provisioned for the user if one does not already exist. User attributes
(username, first name, last name, display name, nickname, and email address)
can be synchronized with your enterprise’s system of record each time the user
logs into WordPress.
Finally, the user’s role within WordPress can be automatically set (and
continually updated) based on any attribute Shibboleth provides. For example,
you may decide to give users with an eduPersonAffiliation value of faculty
the WordPress role of editor, while the eduPersonAffiliation value of
student maps to the WordPress role contributor. Or you may choose to limit
access to WordPress altogether using a special eduPersonEntitlement value.
