Authentication and Authorization with Shibboleth and LDAP

Previously, I tried setting up a more efficient Shibboleth Attribute Authority - one where I could query for a specific attribute value for a specific attribute for a specific user (e.g. does have an experimentId attribute with the value 2?).

The file has entries for Stanford's test federation (DevFed), Internet2's test federation (InQueue) and Internet2's production Continue reading Configuring a Shibboleth Service Provider
