InC_Participant_badgeThe National Institutes of Health will be requiring multi-factor authentication for most if not all services starting September 15th, and InCommon® members will need to be prepared for these changes. In this open forum webinar, Unicon Software Architects Mike Grady and Jonathan Johnson and Senior Software Engineer Paul Spaude will be shedding light on the new MFA and single sign-on (SSO) requirements to access NIH resources. If you are using the standard authentication handlers of Shibboleth IdP, CAS Server, or SimpleSAMLphp for your federated SAML IdP, then this webinar will prepare you to adapt seamlessly to the new NIH requirements.
