Recently, the Canadian Access Federation sent emails to Cirrus Identity Bridge customers with a registered Cirrus Bridge Identity Provider in the Canadian Access Federation (CAF) to call attention to the release of Shibboleth Version 5. See an example of the emails below. 

The CAF communication states, "The version of Shibboleth that you are currently using will no longer be supported after September 1, 2024. To receive ongoing support and security updates, please upgrade to Version 5 before this date.”

Cirrus customers who are operational with Cirrus Bridges and received this CAF email do not need to worry about upgrading Shibboleth. The Cirrus Bridge does not use Shibboleth. Cirrus Bridge customers should reply "Not Using Shibboleth" to the message. 

Thank you!
