Hi Terry,

So you are using CAS to authenticate shibboleth idp, but how did you go about retrieving the attributes?  Did you setup an ldap connector or are you having CAS send the attributes to the Shibboleth idp server and then manipulating the data to work with Shibboleth.

How did you proceed with that and can you provide us with some helpful suggestions on how to go about accomplishing that?

Hi Juan,

We just completed our IdP setup to auth against our CAS server (instead
of ldap).  All information was grabbed from the following URL ..

The only thing they left out (I thought it was obvious, but you never
know) was that you have to comment out the standard UsernamePassword
login handler, since you'll be using the RemoteUser handler supplied in
the documentation.
