Why use the Shibboleth ADFS / Azure AD Authentication Module?
With more and more Shibboleth organisations starting to use Microsoft’s “Active Directory Federation Services” & Azure AD, there becomes a need to seamlessly log on to both Shibboleth and ADFS / Azure resources. ADFS / Azure resources such as SharePoint, Office 365 and Exchange (to name a few), need to work alongside the more traditional Shibboleth resources such as Learning Management Systems (such as BlackBoard/Moodle), Library systems (Heritage) and many other online e-resources.
Avoid multiple logins
Using these systems, users find that they need to log on to ADFS and Shibboleth separately, causing multiple logins and thus preventing a true Single Sign On (SSO) environment. This is against Overt’s ethos of True Single Sign On.
Utilising Overt’s Shibboleth ADFS/Azure AD Authentication Modules (SAAM) overcomes the need for separate Shibboleth and ADFS / Azure AD logins.
SAAM simultaneously logs the user into both ADFS / Azure AD & Shibboleth. This means that when a user accesses an ADFS / Azure AD or Shibboleth resource, they can seamlessly move between both platforms without the arduous task of logging in multiple times.
