Cloud hosted alternative for multilateral federation!

Key Features - SAML Bridge

Cloud hosted and managed product that integrates Azure AD, Okta, Duo SSO and other commercial Identity Providers that don’t support multilateral federation required by all eduGAIN national federations (InCommon, CAF, UK Federation and many others) for global research and scholarship. 

The Cirrus SAML Bridge is a cloud-hosted alternative to running Shibboleth or SimpleSAMLPhP.


The DNS Add-On supports redirecting SAML authentications from the existing Shibboleth service to the SAML Bridge without changes to the configured Service Providers and/or InCommon registration. 


The Attribute Authority Add-On supports integrating other required attributes at the time of authentication if they are not stored in the primary Identity Provider.
