Shibboleth Overview Session

Last Friday, I gave a quick overview of the Shibboleth Single Sign-On service

The session was varied, aimed at everyone from sys-admins, to developers, to end-users but hopefully there was something for most people to take away.

The slides are available for download and the session was recorded using ReCap, if you missed it or want to watch again.

The interest was high and questions (during, and after, the presentation) were wide ranging; it was useful to see from a user perspective what people think/are doing with the service.

Integration Services


In the spirit of openness and with our new principles of operation in mind, I wanted to create a space for us to showcase our services: principally the Login Gateway (built on Shibboleth), Group Management (built on Grouper) and the Institutional Data Feed Service (IDFS).

As well as extolling the benefits, we will try to leave useful tips and guidance for users of the services and share interesting stories and ideas. Readers’ contributions would be welcomed, too.
