Free webinar – Shibboleth Identity Provider (IdP) version 3 overview:

An informative, plain speaking webinar on what is new in Shibboleth IdP version 3

With Shibboleth IdP version 2 coming to the end of its life in July 2016, now is a great time to get up to speed and

find out what is new in Shibboleth IdP version 3.

As one of the UK’s leading Shibboleth providers, we get asked many questions like “What are the main

differences between the two versions?”, “How will Shibboleth IdP v3 affect my e-resources and online

publishers?”, “What is the upgrade path?” and “What does the new attribute consent functionality mean for my

users?”. Overt Software Solutions will be running a series of free, informative and plain speaking webinars to

address these questions and more.

This webinar will look at the following topics:

What is new in Shibboleth IdP v3?

  • Shibboleth IdP v2 to v3 upgrade path. Is going “Cloud” a better option?
  • What are the concerns for Service Providers and Publishers regarding Shibboleth IdP v3?
  • Shibboleth IdP v3 Load Balancing and Shibboleth/ADFS integration
  • Shibboleth IdP v3 statistics

Duration:30 minutes including Q&A (this can be extended if there is sufficient demand for Q&A)
