Proposal Number: ? Proposal Title: Add Shibboleth as an Authentication Option
|Last edited|| |
|Assigned to release||2.4.0|
|Resources||CSIRO staff available to implement the proposal. Will do an example implementation in the BlueNet MEST sandbox if there are no objections. Simon Pigot to commit to trunk with other 2.4.0 changes.|
The aim of the proposal is to create a Shibboleth service provider for GeoNetwork (initially BlueNet MEST). This will allow Australian Access Federation and potentially other shibboleth based users to authenticate with the register and interact with it as if they had authenticated via LDAP or natively.

- App: GeoNetwork
- Module: Login
- Not voted on yet.
CSIRO wishes to have a GeoNetwork repository that can be used by selected collaborators external to the organisation. Rather than add these collaborators to our LDAP or to make the data public we would like to use the Australian Access Federation initiative to allow staff from collaborating institutions to log into the GeoNetwork instance. This will provide large savings on administration time.
An in depth proposal can be found in the attached document.
Backwards Compatibility Issues
Care will be taken to ensure that the current LDAP and native authentication systems are not disrupted by the change.
