During past few months, LEARN Identity Access Federation has gathered a considerable amount of IDP's from LEARN members. But the number of connected Service Providers (SP) are very low. One of the main reasons for this low SP count would be the technical knowledge of SAML based Service Provider Installation and usage.
SAML SP enabled applications would allow any user with a federated identity to access the service using web based authentication and ultimately this can take all the different web based applications to have a Single Sign On mechanism within all institutes.
Therefore, this online workshop will look into the basics of SAML 2.0 SP and its integration on popular web based applications such as Wordpress or Moodle.
Also this may train participants to convert their in-house applications to SAML authentication and thereafter connecting them to their own IDP or to the LIAF. This will also allow any qualified application to become a SP in edugain community as well.
