Bug#390274: ITP: shibboleth-sp -- Shibboleth federated authorization system

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Russ Allbery <rra@debian.org>

* Package name    : shibboleth-sp
  Version         : 1.3e
  Upstream Author : Internet2 <shib-info@internet2.edu>
* URL             : http://shibboleth.internet2.edu/
* License         : Apache 2.0
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Shibboleth federated authorization system

Shibboleth provides a federated authorization and attribute exchange
framework using the OASIS SAML v1.1 protocol.  It provides web-based
single sign-on across or within organizational boundaries and allows
sites to make informed authorization decisions for individual access of
protected online resources while letting them establish their identities
with their own local authentication systems.  (Bleh, that's quite a
mouthful and not horribly clear.  I'll try to make it better.)

The source package will build an Apache module and several shared
libraries that it depends on.  My intention is to only support Apache
2.0 (or soon 2.2) and not build the Apache 1.x module unless someone
specifically requests.

This package depends on OpenSAML, which is currently in NEW.
