Course descriptions

Implementing a Shibboleth 2 identity Provider

The UK federation provide a standardised way of exchanging authenticationand authorisation requests in a consistent, secure and privacy preserving manner. Organisations who have members who wish to access such resources may wish to run their own Shibboleth Identity Provider to enable this. This course will provide a number of discussions and hands-on labs for delegates to work through in individually and in a small group, centred around the installation and configuration of a Shibboleth 2 Identity Provider; this will then be tested against a reference Shibboleth 2 Service Provider. The course includes some discussion of migration from an existing Shibboleth 1.3 installation.

Implementing a Shibboleth 2 Service Provider

It centres around the installation and configuration of a Shibboleth 2 Service Provider; along with guidance and practical experience of integrating this with a web application's access control mechanisms. This installation will then be tested against a reference Shibboleth 2 Identity Provider. The course includes some discussion of migration from an existing Shibboleth 1.3 installation.
