    About

    The UK Access Management Federation provides a standardised way of exchanging authentication and 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. Similarly, organisations who have resources they wish to give access to through this method may wish to run their own Shibboleth service provider to enable this.

    This course will be held on two consecutive days by Rhys Smith, our chief technical architect, trust and identity. The course will start off by providing a number of discussions and hands-on labs for you to work through individually and in a small group, centred around the installation and configuration of a Shibboleth 3 identity provider; this will then be tested against a reference Shibboleth service provider.

    Later, you will look at the installation and configuration of a Shibboleth 3 service provider; along with guidance and practical experience of integrating this with a web application's access control mechanism. This installation will then be tested against a reference Shibboleth 3 identity provider.

    This course includes some discussion of migration from an existing Shibboleth IdP or SP installation.
