OGC® Engineering Report for the OWS Shibboleth Interoperability Experiment

Christopher Higgins

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This document reports on outcomes from the OGC Web Services Shibboleth Interoperability Experiment (OSI). The main objective of OSI was to advance the use of Shibboleth (an open source implementation of SAML) as a means of protecting OWS. In the process, OSI helped develop further understanding of this approach to establishing trusted federations of OWS. This report documents these findings and is intended to be of use to those interested in how Shibboleth/SAML access management federations may function as an organisational model for operational Spatial Data Infrastructure.
