[14.2.2023] Shibboleth identity provider is available again

As of now (14.02.2023), a Shibboleth identity provider is available again at the University of Duisburg-Essen. This enables the use of decentralised services of the DFN network. These include the services connected via the DFN federation (for example Gigamove) as well as the eLab lab books. Logging in is done as usual using a unique identifier and the corresponding password.

New Sciebo accounts can also be created, old accounts can be extended and existing accounts can be provided with new passwords.

For selected services, rework is necessary, which is currently being carried out. According to the current status, this concerns Alma. (Zoom is available again.)

Operators of services that authenticate against Shibboleth and for which authentication does not yet work are asked to contact ZIM by e-mail at hotline.zim@uni-due.de. They are asked to check in advance whether the service is available again. They are asked to check in advance whether the Shibboleth/SAML certificate of their server is still valid.
