  Description     : Shibboleth plugin for Wordpress

This plugin is designed to support integrating your WordPress blog into
your existing identity management infrastructure using a Shibboleth
Service Provider.

WordPress can be configured 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.
