Federated Identity Management: The Shibboleth Approach
Tuesday, March 22 | 3:30PM–4:15PM | Seville East/First Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
The Shibboleth software system enables Web-based, interinstitutional resource sharing by leveraging campus identity management systems. Creating a larger trust community of collaborating institutions and partners using Shibboleth requires the establishment of a federation. This session will present an overview of Shibboleth and federations, including InCommon, the first U.S. higher education federation. The presentation is sponsored by the NMI-EDIT Consortium of Internet2, EDUCAUSE, and SURA.
