7 Why Federated Access in AUCA? For our users – only single window for authentication to access to all services Single Point of access – one Username and Password to access all on-line services Once accessed you dont need to login to all different services The services and data may be located outside the University. Future Cooperation EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011

8 University level (AUCA): For federated authentication and authorization infrastructure internally Consortium level (KLIC): In getting a pilot in Kyrgyzstan Identity Federation started, Library consortium resource providers to use federated authentication and authorization infrastructure Federated Access: from University to Country level EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011

9 Federated Access – University Level – AUCA Experience Selection of SP (Service Provider ) and IdP (Identity Provider) software Selection criteria: MS Windows/Linux, Java/PHP, Shibboleth/simpleSAMLphp University IT staff qualification EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011

10 simpleSAMLphp (http://simplesamlphp.org/) as IdP and SP for AUCAhttp://simplesamlphp.org/ Set up simpleSAMLphp (IdP and SP) - AUCA authorization page createdhttp://login.auca.kg/idp/ For security reasons SSL certificate has been registered - - free of charge Connection between created IdP and AUCA Active Directory AUCA Idp and SP connection EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011

11 AUCA authorization web- page (AUCA IdP) EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011

12 Challenges New software, no experience Time consuming Coordination between IT offices – IdP and SP set up and local databases, and the University Authentication rules EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011

13 Benefits and the Future Plans Work experience (Shibboleth and simpleSAMLphp) and trained IT staff Promotion Federated Access in AUCA – easy access to on-line service Promotion Federated Access among Kyrgyz Libraries Information Consortium (training sessions for IT staff and librarians) – new way of Kyrgyz libraries cooperation CAREN EIFL General Assembly 2011 Minsk, Belarus Belarus National Library June , 2011
