The Shibboleth IDP does not provide an authentication backend nor does
it come complete with a self-service sign-up application.
It can certainly use whatever you build, though.

FWIW: If using SimpleSAMLphp instead of Shibboleth as the IDP is an option
there exists an add-on module that offers the self-service sign-up part:
But that's not without its issues (see Issues there) and that code is
de facto unmaintained as noone is currently spending time fixing
things or implementing new features.
(And of course SimpleSAMLphp and Shibboleth are not equivalent in their
features nor their configuration.)
