InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshops

Need training on Shibboleth installation and support? Interested in getting the most out of your InCommon Federation participation? Consider attendiing an InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshop.

These two-day workshops will take you through the installation of both the Identity Provider and the Service Provider, and will touch on some configuration options and recommendations. Our trainers have broad experience with Shibboleth and with these training sessions.

Please note: The IdP training focuses on the TIER version of Shibboleth, which comes in a Docker container with some configuration that makes it easier to interact with InCommon. The TIER wiki space has additional information about this version of the Shibboleth IdP.

Please be sure to read the technical requirements before registering.

  • Self-paced technical installation and configuration of the Identity Provider v3 and Service Provider, plus information about configuration and running the software in production and baseline federation practices
  • 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. (local time) each day

  • Install under Linux (CentOS) or Microsoft Windows environment
  • Learn about integration with LDAP directories and selected packages, as well as advanced topics.

Institutions are encouraged to send up to two attendees who best represent the following functions:

  • System install, integration, and ongoing support staff

  • Campus technology architects
