Integration to Campus-Wide Login via Shibboleth

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.

One Response to Integration to Campus-Wide Login via Shibboleth

  1. Martha Teate says:

    Very good overview of Shibboleth. It is helpful for the UBC community to be made aware that the ability to use the tool aligned with CWL is available to them.
