Most of the larger content providers and other service providers do support SSO. Smaller content or service providers, not so often. Since you're in the U.S., check the list of participants in the InCommon Federation, which is the federation for higher education in the U.S.: https://www.incommon.org/participants/.
We've had increasing difficulty keeping proxy server configurations working as time goes on, web applications become more complex, and browsers become more strict in various ways. We're not ready to get rid of the proxy server yet, there's a combination of non-Shibboleth vendors and campus culture to consider, but I look forward to that day! -Tod Tod Olson <t...@uchicago.edu<mailto:t...@uchicago.edu>> Systems Librarian Interim Director for Integrated Library Systems University of Chicago Library On Aug 9, 2017, at 2:44 PM, Pennington, Buddy D. <penningt...@umkc.edu<mailto:penningt...@umkc.edu>> wrote: Do vendors even directly support SSO? We use SSO to enable users to authenticate into EZProxy for IP-based access to our electronic resources. I didn't think cutting out EZProxy and just going with SSO was an option.

I'll second Bethany's point on many smaller vendors just now moving to IP authentication. If it consoles campus IT tell them they are right....it has been at least 10 years since I have been hearing that proxy servers are a thing of the past, but that the working normal across most libraries is IP/proxy authentication.

My campus is looking into Single Sign-On for the first time, and the campus technical people believe that proxy servers are a thing of the past, but I don't know whether all of our vendors will be able to support an alternative method. Thanks for your help. Cindy
