Résumé

The workshop helps service providers to make their resources and services available to the users of DARIAH throughout Europe. Participants will learn how to install and configure the open source Shibboleth Service Provider (SP) software, which is needed to integrate their services into the DARIAH research infrastructure.

Presentation

The workshop is intended in particular for organizations that provide resources and services for the DARIAH (art and humanities) research infrastructure. The workshop is divided into three parts:

  • Part 1 is more generic and useful to any service provider interested in providing online services to SAML based identity federation.
  • Part 2 is more specific and focuses on integrating a service with the DARIAH research infrastructure.
  • Part 3 is a meeting of the DARIAH-EU working group FIM4D (“Federated Identity Management for DARIAH”, see https://dariah.eu/activities/working-groups.html).

The aim of this workshop is to help the service providers to make their resources and services available to the users of DARIAH throughout Europe. The workshop has a down-to-earth and hands-on approach that will be rather technical in part 2. The workshop teaches in practice how to install the open source Shibboleth Service Provider (SP) software needed to integrate in the research infrastructure. The participants will install, test and configure their own Shibboleth SP. The goal is to make the participants familiar with the basic configuration of Shibboleth SP. At the end of the training participants should be familiar with the basic aspects of running a Shibboleth SP and integrating it to the DARIAH Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (AAI).

The workshop is a mix of lectures and hands-on lessons where participants will have an opportunity to play around with installing and setting up code.

The Working Group meeting will discuss its milestones and dissemination strategies.

Main goals of the training

  • Install and configure a Shibboleth Service Provider, version 2.x
  • Know how and where to configure basic functionalities
  • Learn how to protect static web pages and applications
  • Understand how attributes can be used within web applications
  • Learn how to integrate the Shibboleth SP to DARIAH AAI and what additional services they offer

Requirements

Participants that want to actively take part in the hands-on sessions should bring a laptop (requirements see below) – if you do not have one, please let the organizers know in advance. There will be some at the venue. You may also be paired with someone else.

Participants should ideally have a very basic understanding of federations and federated identity management, including the terms and the benefits, but a short introduction on this will be provided to catch up. Participants should also be familiar with the concept and the motivation of running Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (AAI) services. Basic Linux skills are recommended for the hands-on parts.

The training is performed on a virtual machine (VM). The VM image can be run in Virtual Box (recommended) or VMware Player/Fusion.

To run the SP Training VM the following minimal requirements have to be met:

  • User must have administration privileges on the laptop
  • Any recent (< 4 years) Intel or AMD processor.
  • 4 GByte RAM (at least 1.5GB free memory)
  • 12 GByte free harddisk space
  • Internet Connectivity
  • VirtualBox (or VMWare Player) installed and fully operational (see below).

Practical informations

The workshop and the meeting are free of charge. The social gathering in a restaurant is on self-pay basis.
