Install Shibboleth service provider software

Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and SUSE Linux

This tutorial assumes that you already have Shibboleth installed and working on your server and that you are using Drupal 7.

Install and configure Shibboleth authentication module

Download and install the Shibboleth authentication Drupal module, as you would typically install a contributed Drupal module.

Once it is installed, visit Configuration > Shibboleth settings.

Bluestem authentication plugin for WordPress integrates with WordPress sites to allow you to log in to your WordPress site using your UIC credentials. The plugin works with single and multi-site (network) installations.

The main advantage of using this plugin is security: instead of a local WordPress password, you and the users of your site can use existing UIC passwords. And, by replacing WordPress authentication with Bluestem, it removes local accounts and passwords as a vector of attack.

To support another hostname on the same server that is already configured for Shibboleth you will need to clone the endpoints that were added to your metadata during registration, changing the hostnames. You should have one set of endpoints for each hostname.

This guide explains how to install the Bluestem client on a Linux (CentOS 7) server.

Register application server

Visit Bluestem application server registration page and click Add New Server. Type the hostname of the server in Hostname field. If the server later gets a CNAME, the CNAME will automatically work with Bluestem without any additional registrations. Copy the key string and click Save Changes.

Once a new NetID is activated, or reactivated, an overnight process will update the appropriate data fields. The following day the new NetID will be able to authenticate and access any systems using Shibboleth.
