Description

Fordham University has begun a staged migration of its authentication infrastructure to CAS. The process began with a pilot to support one externally hosted application, and it quickly progressed to include many other strategic university applications. We had partnered with Unicon, along the way, to provide subject matter expertise, and to help us increase ours as well. More recently, we endeavored to extend the CAS to include attribute-based authorization control. This initiative will help to provide a foundation for future application architecture upgrades. In the spirit of extending CAS, we look forward to combining with Shibboleth, so that the university will be well positioned to securely share information with colleagues at other institutions. This session will provide an overview of our approach, the technical architecture, and lessons learned.
