Made contact with STFC Shibboleth contacts to start assessment of Shibboleth - NDG Security integration.

  • Drafted assessment doc listing the issues for integration
  • Code and support available to set up test Shibboleth IdP and SP.

Shibboleth test federation now set-up on laptop. It should be possible to mimic the behaviour of the SP with a python equivalent or else make a python interface to shibd the Shibboleth Service Provider server process.

No further work possible before close of OMII project. Some progress made with an assessment doc and test IdP and SP set-up. Noted that Shib enabling NDG is not just a technical activity but if we are to join the UK Federation it also requires admin to officially sign up and bound by the terms.
