Middleware: Shibboleth and Federations

Time 10/15/03 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

Federations are emerging as a trust fabric that permits enterprises in a sector to work together in a networked world. Several systems, such as the Liberty Alliance and Shibboleth, are being deployed to foster these interactions. This session will look at early activities in this area. Corporate early adopters will be described. Federal efforts around e-Gov and e-Authentication will be presented. In the research and education community, a variety of federated structures using Shibboleth are now under active development. This session will highlight efforts in higher education in the U.S. and overseas as well as federations in life-long learning and state-based systems.
