Install/Setup Shibboleth Repository

Install Shibboleth SP

Start the Shibboleth SP Daemon

Configure/Edit /etc/shibboleth/shibboleth2.xml file

The /etc/shibboleth/shibboleth2.xml is the main configuration file for Shibboleth SP. Below is an example of a shibboleth2.xml configuration file that has been preconfigured to use SIFULAN's Discovery Service to identify the IdP.

  1. Replace <HOSTNAME> and <SUPPORT EMAIL> with the SP's hostname and support email
  2. You need to obtain SIFULAN's metadata signer public key to verify the authenticity of the metadata. You can perform the following command to download the key:
    # wget -O /etc/shibboleth/sifulan-signer.pem
  3. You need to restart the shibd after you modified the shibboleth2.xml config file
