Once you've begun to use Shibboleth as your campus Web SSO, what are the issues in extending it to external service providers? What are the critical questions to ask when planning this type of service? What policy and process issues need to be addressed when noncampus users begin to access local resources?

Also included will be characteristics of federating software that are important to operational load and integrity within a federation.
