Hi All,

I suspect some people in this mailing list will be very pleased to  
know that SPIE Project developed some 'glue' to Shibboleth-enable  
uPortal.

You can see a demo here:

       http://shib-test.oucs.ox.ac.uk/uPortal

Please use demo/demo against the SPIE LDAP IdP (the other IdPs use  
Oxford University WebAuth SSO System). Within the uPortal  
authenticated session you will be able to see the attributes obtained  
via Shibboleth in the 'Person Attributes' Portlet. So, they leave a  
the Portal Framework level.

This glue is based on a SPIE Working Package to make uPortal  
Shibboleth-aware. We started by trying to 'Shibbolise' JSPWiki which  
uses Servlet Container-based authN/authZ). This proved to be more  
difficult to do than to
'Shibbolise' uPortal or CAS Server, which use Application-based authN/ 
authZ. uPortal took half a day to 'Shibolise' and CAS Server less  
than one hour. It's worth mentioning that integration with uPortal is  
done via a ShibbolethSecurityContext, the standard way to provide a  
security AuthN handler for uPortal (version 2.5.x). An equivalent  
approach was followed to Shibboleth-enable CAS Server (version 2.0.12).

This code is already available in our CVS (info via SPIE's Wiki,  
http://spie.oucs.ox.ac.uk/). This is early beta code and expect it to  
change very often. The JSPWiki, uPortal and CAS integration code  
(glue) will also be available in the JASIG Clearinghouse, probably  
next week. Documentation how to use this code will also be available  
in our Wiki over the next weeks. (Note: there seems to be some  
problems to access the code via Anonymous CVS (thanks MAMS Project to  
discover this. This will be fixed soon).

Meanwhile, you can find some information about the mechanism employed  
in the presentation we gave yesterday at the JA-SIG UK Meeting. This  
presentation and other presentations on related subjects are  
available at:

    http://spie.oucs.ox.ac.uk/Wiki.jsp?page=Presentations

BTW, this is the Wiki I mentioned before. Shibboleth is only  
triggered when trying to access the Wiki in a non read-only mode,  
e.g. Edit, Delete, Attach. There is also mechanisms to protect some  
pages for Viewing, based on a mapping  between the attributes  
obtained via Shibboleth and the the Wiki ACLs.

Of course this only Shibboleth-enable the 2-tier. The SAML 2.0 SSO  
with Constrained Delegation Profile will be needed to Shibboleth- 
enable the n-tier.

Hope you find it useful and please feel free to give suggestions.
Regards,
