I have a PHP website that I would like to integrate with Security and Authentication/Authorization. My client has Shibboleth IdP and I am looking to leverage their IdP. I am new to Security arena and someone pointed me to Gluu. That being said, what do I need to do with Gluu in config and what do I need to achieve to add authentication to my PHP site? Happy to hire someone to do this for me for a fee. I am looking for a generic solution whereby I can use Gluu to secure and authenticate my various web sites Thanks for guidance provided in advance

Gluu is an IDP itself, and in fact bundles Shibboleth IDP. If you are OK to operate your own Gluu IDP, then you can integrate with your partners using our inbound SAMl documentation: https://gluu.org/docs/ce/authn-guide/inbound-saml-passport/ The idea is that even if users auth at external Shib IDPs, you still need a way to identify the users locally, meaning you need somewhere to store the user data..that would go in your gluu server. Im closing this ticket because I believe i have satisfactorily answered the question. There are a lot of existing tickets about getting this working properly. If you want to hire a resource, we could introduce you to a oartner of ours. Email me directly if you'd like a referral.. will at gluu dot org. Thanks,. will
