Shibboleth5 is an increasingly adopted technology for enabling an authorization scheme across multiple Universities and Internet publishers, based on SAML defined attribute requests and attribute responses. This technology can be adapted to web resources that need to be restricted according to attributes such as those commonly found in an Institution's student record system. There is a partial mapping between the existing capabilities of the technology and the requirement for intra- and inter-institutional attribute management in the context of widely-deployed virtual learning environments.
