This Webinar explains how the software SimpleSAMLphp for authentication and identity services works.

Often library users, including students, academics and also library staff themselves, are faced with an array of different passwords for accessing different parts of the network, catalogues, electronic resource databases and so on. This can be readily resolved with SimpleSAMLphp which builds on your database of users (e.g. LDAP or radius) to support single sign-on local authentication. 

Following a very popular session at the EIFL-FOSS Regional Seminar 2011, EIFL-FOSS and EIFL-Licensing held a Themed Week on the SimpleSAMLphp software that makes possible single sign-on and local authentication. 

Guest speakers at the online workshop for this Themed Week included:

SimpleSAMLphp is a means of delivering authentication and authorization. It is based on SAML and written in PHP.
