It occurs to me that I haven't seen any mention around the UK of a
meeting that's coming up in a month that may be of interest to folks
here. It's The Terena EuroCAMP (European Campus middleware planning
workshop, if you must...) which is being held in Athens (surprisingly
easy to get to by budget airlines from Gatwick, Luton and Stansted).
I went to one last year and it was a really good event, quite an eye
opener to see the bigger picture of Federation in Europe. Notes from
their web site say:
The workshop programme will include step-by-step guidance to the
installation and implementation of middleware components and will
therefore be most suited to people with a technical background.
This EuroCAMP event will be a basic event, mainly aimed to those
operating directories and identity management (IdM) systems within
campuses. The event will address the following topics:
Directories and how to populate them;
How to allow applications to use directories;
Why moving from LDAP based organisation database to an IdM system;
Single Sign On and authentication inside and outside campuses (CAS,
simpleSAMLphp, shibboleth etc and how to use them);
Some case studies will also be presented to show practical
implementation of what was presented.
