Access control with Shibboleth and Grouper. How to populate identity stores.

Newcastle University has been using Shibboleth to do authentication for several years.

Use Grouper for authorizaiton decisions.

All hierarchy information is in Grouper. Then expose that for authorization.

Problems were uncovered  in the Newcastle data architecture

Too many arrows

So needed a project to tie this together

Goal:  improve data flow into end applications

Need a tool that can take  module code and need to make sense of all core institutional data
