Need training on Shibboleth installation? Interested in the new version 3 of the Shibboleth Identity Provider? Then we invite you to the InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshop, co-sponsored by OARnet, June 11-12, 2015, at the offices of the Ohio Technology Consortium in Columbus, Ohio.

Shibboleth has changed and we will focus the training sessions on people who wish to learn about and eventually deploy the new version. Those interested in upgrading from v2.x will also find value, but we will mainly cover IdPv3 as an independent topic to ensure we deliver the clearest content possible.

During this two-day, directed self-paced workshop, you will install the identity provider and service provider software. Our experienced trainers will provide overviews and one-on-one help during the session. You will also join in a discussion about configuration and suggested practices for federation. Since IdPv3 greatly simplifies the installation process, particularly for Windows, we anticipate having plenty of time to explore configuration issues and also cover baseline practices for participating in the federation. Attendance is limited to 40 registrants.

The workshops will offer the chance to:

  • Install a prototype Shibboleth identity or service provider in a virtual machine environment
  • Discuss how to configure and running 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. Organizations are encouraged to send one or two attendees who best represent the following functions:

  • System install, integration, and ongoing support staff
  • Campus technology architects
