InCommon and Internet2 will host two InCommon Shibboleth Installation Workshops in 2018, one at the Unicon headquarters in suburban Phoenix, Arizona (May 22-23) and one at the University of Pittsburgh (July 10-11). At this time, these are the only Shibboleth workshops planned for 2018!
The two-day training covers both the Identity Provider and Service Provider software, using the TIER (Trust and Identity in Education and Research) version of the IdP, which is delivered via a Docker container and is pre-configured to work well with InCommon. Trainers will also discuss the DevOps process used to update container version, as well as configuration and suggested practices for the federation. Knowledge of identity management concepts and related implementation experience is strongly recommended.
