GILEAD is a joint project between Information Systems Services (ISS), the University Library and the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Leeds. The University is currently engaged in a major initiative which aims to provide simplified or single sign-on capability to a wide range of internal and external information systems. As part of this endeavour the University aims to transition away from a number of existing access management solutions. The University resolved 18 months ago to rationalise the number of directory services on campus and has now adopted Microsoft's Active Directory (AD) as an institution-wide LDAP service. For the first time we now have a directory which contains all students and staff and AD is now being used to authenticate access to a wide range of both Microsoft and non-Microsoft systems. The University's aim is to reduce the number of username & password databases it has to populate and manage and the adoption of Shibboleth has been identified as an important component in our drive to simplify access to a number of commonly used teaching and research-orientated resources. The main objectives of the proposed project are to: as a prototype, use Guanxi derived Shibboleth Origins to test federation arrangements between Leeds and Manchester Universities; modify a number of existing resources to act as Shibboleth Targets; as the ultimate goal, move to using a University of Leeds institutional Shibboleth Origin, testing this with different attribute sources. The project will run from March 2005 - March 2006. It is anticipated that the main objectives of authenticating access to our VLE via our Shibboleth Origin and use of the Athens-Shibboleth Gateway Service will be operational in time for the start of the 2005/06 academic year. Project start date: 2005-04-01. Project end date: 2006-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)
