GLASgow Early Adoption of Shiboleth



In this proposal we wish to investigate how the integrated directory infrastructure for unified user account management currently being rolled out across the University of Glasgow can be utilised in a Shibboleth environment. In particular we will explore the usage and adoption of Shibboleth through a variety of case studies in the education and medical domains including those requiring Grid-based authentication and authorisation. In doing this we will draw on a variety of security focused e-Science projects within the National e-Science Centre at the University of Glasgow including the JISC funded DyVOSE project and a collection of e-Health projects.
