Typically, such functionality is provided externally. This could be done
using a proprietary IdP of last resort, or using a social identity
providers (Google, etc). InCommon also recently had a working group on
this topic[1].

It actually wouldn't be too hard to add IdPoLR functionality to COmanage
(via a plugin, though you'd still need to operate an authentication
service like the Shib IdP). We've talked about this from time to
time[2], but haven't had a use case or resources to move forward with.
If you're interested in this, we could take this conversation offline or
to the dev list and discuss approaches and options.
