Shibboleth 3.x Identity Provider: Two Campus Case Studies on Implementation

Internet2 Trust & Identity Solution Provider Webinar: Unicon
(formerly known as InCommon Affiliates)
Wednesday, September 23, 2015
2 pm ET | 1 pm CT | Noon MT | 11 am PT (slides and audio)

The next InCommon Affiliate webinar, now part of the Internet2 Industry Program, will take place September 23 and feature Unicon and two campus case studies on Shibboleth IdPv3 adoption.

Many higher education institutions have adopted (or are planning on adopting) Shibboleth 3.x Identity Provider (IdP) due to the end-of-life of security patches for Shibboleth 2.x IdP in July 2016. In this webinar, Unicon’s Johnathan Johnson, senior software engineer, will present with representatives from Portland State University and The University of Chicago on each institution’s journey with implementing Shibboleth 3.x IdP.

  • Unicon collaborated with Portland State University to deploy Shibboleth 3.x IDP, utilizing both its SAMLv2 and Central Authentication Service (CAS) protocol support. Unicon also incorporated a Hazelcast backend, to provide a trouble-free shared session service that allows multi-node/High Availability IdP deployment supporting both SAMLv2 and CAS.
  • Unicon worked together with The University of Chicago to forward-port their existing Shibboleth 2.x IDP configuration to 3.x IdP, and built a Docker (container) image of IdP incorporating that configuration allowing for easy deployment of an updated image (and easy rollback if needed).
