Over time, Stanford is switching from its homegrown WebAuth to the SAML 2.0 standard for web authentication. For Stanford servers and applications using WebAuth to authenticate users, this will involve a WebAuth to Shibboleth migration. If you manage such resources, you will be able to find project plans and links to technical documentation on this page.
- Take inventory of your current WebAuth application(s).
The following information will be required for the migration:
- Application name, URL, business owner, application owner, technical lead, group email
- List of attributes used by the application, or current keytab principle
- Join the mailing list email@example.com.
- WebAuth to SAML/Shibboleth Service Provider (SP) Migration (Sunet ID and password required)
