We have updated our local Shibboleth IdP to a newer version. It looks more light and offers new features enabling more external services.

Shibboleth is a federated user authentication scheme. It enables Jacobs University Members to access Internet web services of third party Service Providers, who use Shibboleth for federated user authentication, e.g. our library's e-book provider or the video conferencing service of the DFN.

Here is a screenshot of the new login page when accessing the DFNconf service:

  2. Hi,

    I am having trouble accessing some databases (specifically Web of Science) using the Shibboleth login - I am able to reach this page, but then after I enter my details I receive a message saying there is an error with the login. I contacted the support for Web of Science, who informed me the issue was internal as my username was registered as having access. Is there a way to resolve this?

  3. Hey,

    I tried to login into StudIP at Uni Bremen via Shibboleth. However, the request timed out and I get the message that the service is unavailable.

    Is there any reason for this?

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for your question. No, it was a service problem but it should be work again now.
