Get Started with Shibboleth
Workshop Registration is Open: November 15 – 19, 2021Join Us!
Looking to deploy InCommon-ready Shibboleth Service and Identity Providers in a way that’s easy to install and manage? Want first-hand experience with the world of containers and how they can make your life easier? Plan to join us for the next InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshop.
This virtual workshop (which will be capped at 40 attendees) will focus on the InCommon Trusted Access Platform packaged software — including configuration and operation. Both the Identity and Service Provider packages can be pre-configured to integrate out of the box with the InCommon Federation using recommended defaults.
Thinking about modernizing your operations? Join us and learn about the DevOps approach to managing your development and operations and how you can use the Docker containerized version of the software to streamline your work load. All of the training is done on a AWS-based virtual machine (VM) in our training environment, so you won’t need to know the details about containers.
You will learn:
- how to deploy InCommon-ready Shibboleth Service and Identity Providers in a way that’s easy to install and manage
- how to modernize your development and operations through the DevOps approach
- about the world of containers and how they can make your life easier
What to expect:
- Hands-on configuration and operation 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
The workshops will offer the chance to:
- Install prototype Shibboleth identity and service provider containers in our training environment
- Gain experience with the Docker container version of the Shibboleth IdP and SP
- Discuss how to configure and run the software in production
- Discuss integration with other identity management components
Knowledge of identity management concepts and related implementation experience is strongly recommended.
