Registration Now Open for Two InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshops
July 24-25, 2014 - Indianapolis, Indiana
September 29-30, 2014 - Newark, New Jersey
Need training on Shibboleth installation? Registration is now open for the next two InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshops. Each workshop spends one day installing the identity provider software and one day on the service provider software.
The July 24-25 sessions are at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis* and are co-sponsored by Indiana University. Please note - if you intend to register for Indy, the hotel room block closes on May 31.
The September 29-30 workshop is at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, New Jersey.
These directed self-paced workshops allow attendees to move through the material at their own speed, while having experienced trainers provide overviews and one-on-one help with the process. The workshops provide technical installation and configuration experience with Shibboleth version 2.x. Attendance is limited to 40 registrants each day.
The workshops will offer the chance to:
- Install either a prototype Shibboleth identity or service provider in a virtual machine environment.
- Hear tips for configuring and running the software in production.
- Learn about integration with LDAP directories and selected packages.
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
