Essential Attribute Bundle
IdPs are encouraged to release the essential attribute bundle to the broadest class of SPs possible (subject to policy):
- Mail attribute
- Person name attributes

If your deployment of

It is straightforward to configure a Shibboleth IdP to release the essential attribute bundle to any SP.
