InCommon’s final Shibboleth Installation Workshop of 2017 will take place November 7-8 at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases conference center in Bethesda, Maryland. The two-day training focuses on the installation and basic configuration of both the Shibboleth identity provider and service provider software.

The curriculum uses the TIER (Trust and Identity in Education and Research) version of the Shibboleth identity provider, which is delivered via a Docker container and is pre-configured to integrate with InCommon. Attendees will gain hands-on experience in working with the Docker container and how Shibboleth is installed and configured. Here is what you can expect:

  • A two-day, directed self-paced workshop
  • Hands-on installation of the identity provider and service provider software
  • Experienced trainers providing overviews and one-on-one help
  • Discussions on configuration and suggested practices for federation
  • Attendance is limited to 40

The workshops will offer the chance to:

  • Install the Shibboleth identity and service provider packages
  • Gain experience with the TIER Docker container version of the Shibboleth IdP
  • Discuss how to configure and run the software in production
  • Learn about integration with other identity management components such as LDAP and selected service providers

Knowledge of identity management concepts and related implementation experience is strongly recommended. Workshop details are on the wiki. Registration information is on the InCommon website.
