Internet2 Community Releases Multi-Context Broker for Shib & a Canadian connection

https://spaces.internet2.edu/x/uYHPAg

For those exploring the use of multi factor authentication and Single Sign On may be interested in this release of the Multi-Context Broker(MCB) extension for Shibboleth. 

It's also worth noting the work Mike Wiseman and the University of Toronto have done along with the Shibboleth community working on integration and testing of the MCB with SafeNet eTokenPASS OTP.  Great to see the work out there Mike!

 

Details:

The Internet2 community has released an extension to the Shibboleth software that makes it easier for your organization to support the increasing demand for multifactor authentication and simplify the user experience.

This extension, the Multi-Context Broker (MCB), significantly eases the integration of multifactor authentication technologies and the management of InCommon Assurance Profiles.
