MelbJVM #10 - December meetup

Our last meetup for 2012 returns us back to Peoplebank, Wednesday 5th Dec, 6.30pm

We'll have a presentation from Sumit Khanna talking on Identity Management and Shibboleth, a single sign on solution written in Java.

Shibboleth is a SMAL2 implementation of both an Identity Provider and a variety of Service Providers for use in single-signon. This presentation intends to demonstrate, not only single sign-on, but also dive into the internal Java architecture of the Shibboleth Identity Provider and how to extend it.

Drinks, food and venue all thanks to Peoplebank this month. As always we'll give away a copy of InteliJ Idea thanks to Jetbrains.

About Sumit Khanna

Sumit Khanna is a developer and system administrator who has worked in health care, energy, academia and several other industries with roles dealing closely with digital identity management, web application design, proofing, system administration and security. He graduated with his bachelors of Computer Science in 2005 from Tennessee Technological University and completed his graduate work in 2009 from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. In 2011, he worked for the University of Cincinnati where he implemented their current federated single sign-on system using Shibboleth, an open source identity provider.


Info on getting there:

Peoplebank offices are on the south-west corner of Flinders Lane and Queen St.  Doors lock at 6pm but someone from Peoplebank will be downstairs to let people in.  If when you get there, no one is present, call [masked] and we'll send someone down. We also will be having a raffle, so when you get to Level 13, there will be someone to greet you, get a nametag, and also put you in the raffle draw. For those driving in, there is $10 flat rate after hours parking on Market St, between flinders lane and flinders st.

    Flowed nicely. Sumit was very thorough and I liked the coding exercise. Great job Aaron for doing that on short notice.

    An overwhelming level of detail on Shibboleth, not enough time to work through the code kata

    Interesting to see how an identity provider is set up in nose bleed detail! ;)

    Note, James Ladd has had to pull out of his talk [Redline Smalltalk]. Instead he'll be moving his talk to early next year (Feb) and able to provide a more indepth rundown as a result.
