The "authtype shibboleth" directive is required for httpd to let
mod_shib (the "shibboleth" Service Provider) handle authN. It does
/not/ specify that the IdP you'd like to interact with here is of the
"Shibboleth" implementation. Hence there is no "AuthType adfs" for the
Shibboleth SP.
If you want active protection (see the documentation) like with the
other two resources, you'll need to configure it just like the other
two resources (authtype, require, etc.)
