Aegis Identity integrates the most leveraged technologies to deliver a software that provides out-of-the-box integration for higher education environments, including existing and future LMS, ERP, SIS, SSO, and LDAP.
• Based on open standards SPML, SCIM, Web Services, Groovy, BPMN, Eclipse
• SOA simplifies integration between systems (OASIS)
• Connectors & workflows designed specifically for higher education
• Built from scratch without any legacy dependencies, leveraging well established design methodologies provided by frameworks:
Lower initial cost
Aegis Identity leveraged open standard software making it possible to provide software solutions to meet the affordability needs of higher education. By using open standards as part of the software stack, the cost of development and the subsequent price is lower. Complementing the overall lower cost, Aegis Identity Software, Inc. offers very competitive fixed license pricing based on the overall size of the institution, not the number of users or connectors that you require. This makes TridentHE more affordable for institutions with shrinking budgets.
Lower On-going Support and Maintenance
Open standards allow both the higher education institution and Aegis Identity to more easily attract developers and support staff familiar with technologies such as Groovy and the Spring Framework. This results in lower on-going support and maintenance costs. Whether you choose to have Aegis Identity Software, Inc. provide support, utilize an Aegis Identity Partner, or handle it internally, open standards and open source partner technologies reduce your support costs.
Lower initial cost + Lower on-going cost = Lower Total Cost of Ownership!

The Shibboleth software implements widely used federated identity standards, principally the OASIS Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), to provide a federated single sign-on and attribute exchange framework. A user authenticates with his or her organizational credentials, and the organization (or identity provider) passes the minimal identity information necessary to the service provider to enable an authorization decision. Shibboleth also provides extended privacy functionality allowing a user and their home site to control the attributes released to each application.
The Shibboleth project began as an Internet2 Middleware activity in 2000, and later that year the project connected with the work of the OASIS SAML Working Group. Shibboleth 1.0 was released in 2003, and was quickly adopted by research and education communities worldwide. With SAML 2.0 in 2005 and Shibboleth 2.0 the following year, the SAML standards grew to include all the multi-lateral, metadata driven approaches pioneered by Shibboleth.
Shibboleth is developed as open source software and is released under the Apache Software License.
