ADFS Shibboleth Bridge

With more and more Shibboleth organisations starting to use Microsoft’s “Active Directory Federation Services”, there becomes a need to seamlessly logon to both Shibboleth and ADFS resources.  ADFS resources such as SharePoint, Office 365 and Exchange (to name a few), need to work alongside the more traditional Shibboleth resources like Learning Management Systems (such as BlackBoard/Moodle), Library systems (Heritage) and many online e-resources.

Using these systems users find that they need to logon to ADFS and Shibboleth separately causing multiple logins thus preventing a true Single Sin On (SSO) environment (this is against Overt’s ethos of True SSO).  Utilising Overt’s ADFS / Shibboleth bridge this over comes the need for separate Shibboleth and ADFS logins.  The ADFS / Shibboleth bridge simultaneously logs the user into both ADFS & Shibboleth. This means that when a user accesses an ADFS or Shibboleth resource they can seamlessly move between both platforms without the arduous task of logging in multiple times.

The Diagram below outlines how the ADFS / Shibboleth bridge integrates with each other in a more simplified way. Please contact Overt Software for a more in depth chat on how we can help.
