Shibboleth Authentication and PennGroups

The Shibboleth service allows users to authenticate with their PennKey to a number of web applications. The service allows users to authenticate to these services using just one "identity" (PennName/PennKey) without sharing their password with those services. Shibboleth is one of many implementations of the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) - a data format for exchanging authentication and authorization information. The service provides federated single sign-on, through the InCommon Federation, and attribute exchange to trusted parties. 

This session will also cover a brief overview of PennGroups and will introduce some up-and-coming features including a new user interface and improved availability. PennGroups is a central authorization system at Penn built on Internet2 Grouper. Penn applications can use PennGroups to manage who is allowed to access certain functions in the application.
