        Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and Shibboleth are two federation technologies that allow web browser users in one organization to access web-based applications in another. Shibboleth is open source software developed by Internet2, a US-based advanced networking consortium, and ADFS is a component of Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008 systems.

        This step-by-step guide walks you through how to configure the federation relationships between Microsoft and Internet2 technologies in a test lab environment. This guide assumes an already existing set of ADFS machines and then describes, in detail, the process to install and configure Shibboleth to work as both an Identity Provider (IdP) to an ADFS FS-R (resource federation server) and as a Service Provider (SP) to an ADFS FS-A (account federation server).
