Title: Integration to Campus-Wide Login via Shibboleth
Presenter: Hari Mailvaganam, Senior Programmer Analyst, UBC IT
Description: Shibboleth is an open-source architecture and implementation for direct and federated authentication. It allows websites to make authorization decisions for access of protected online resources in a privacy-preserving manner. Many open source and vendor applications are Shibboleth enabled.
Shibboleth can be used to allow the UBC community to authenticate directly via Campus-Wide Login (CWL) to protected online resources. If required, Shibboleth can be leveraged to allow access for users from other Canadian universities via federated authentication.
