What we do best
We have a great heritage
As part of the Core-Middleware JISC Core Middleware Programme
Partnering with Cardiff University Establish a UK Shibboleth infrastructure Shibboleth early adopters Creating a service to assist the early adopters
Partnering with Cardiff University we implemented Shibboleth for many service providers.
Working with Cardiff University we implemented many IdPs to UK FE Institutions.
In partnership with LSE, Bristol and Cardiff university we helped create an Identity Management Toolkit.
Overt software became incorporated as a separate entity in 2010.
We were invited by King Abdullahs University of Science and Technology to implement their first Shibboleth IdP with Load Balancing.
A review of the IDM tool kit took place.
Overt Software introduces the Cloud IdP.
Working in conjunction with JiSC and using the cloud IdP we provisioned multiple IdPs on the UK Federation for the Training Provider sector.
In 2013 we perfected clustered Moodle and Shibboleth setups utilising Open Source software significantly reducing the costs for institutions and increasing productivity and uptime.
We released our beta AD Password reset tool to aid our Shibboleth clients and to reduce the burden on busy IT Helpdesks.
Realising the weakness in shibboleth is the statistical reporting we developed a Stats Service for shibboleth utilising new web technologies.
In conjunction with the Shibboleth Stats Service project we also begun development of our Shibboleth Control Panel
