LT - Shibboleth and the DRI

Presenters:
Stuart Kenny - Digital Repository Ireland

Description:
The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is a trusted digital repository for social and cultural content held by Irish institutions. As a national infrastructure DRI must be accessible to a broad range of user. In order to simplify user management DRI has integrated Shibboleth authentication. Part of this work involved DRI joining the Edugate identity federation. It is hoped that this will simplify registration and sign-in for users as well as reduce the administrative overhead required for user support.

This talk will briefly outline our experience of integrating the DRI service with Shibboleth and Edugate, and the expected benefits.
