JANET(UK) Shibboleth on Windows project

The UK federation was launched in November 2006 on behalf of an education and research community of between 12 and 18 million eligible end users. A significant proportion of this community are "Microsoft only" organisations. The purpose of the JANET Shibboleth on Windows project is to test and develop an automated Shibboleth IdP installer for a Windows Active Directory environment. This talk will give an update on all aspects of the project including initial findings, challenges and timescales. For more details, please visit the project website:
