Shibboleth is a software developed by Internet2/ [1]MACE, which implements a distributed authentication and authorisation infrastrucutre (AAI). This allows its users a unified access to resources, which are provided on the web by the so-called Service Providers (SPs) .

The control of access authorisation is not conducted by the SP but by the user's home institute, the Identity Provider (IdP). By that SPs do not need to host their own user administration. If the access is granted, is decided by the SP based on information it gets from the IdP. Please also consider the site about data security [2].

Usually SPs and IdPs form federations in order to represent and coordinate their interests. TU Berlin is a member of the DFN-AAI [3].

  • Grid-Computing (e.g. D-Grid)
  • Portals (e.g. ReDI [4])
  • Gigamove [5]
  • DFG-national licences
  • Administration systems
  • e-Science
  • e-Learning systems


When a user tries to access a protected resource (documents, files etc), the provider checks if the user is already authenticated. If this is not the case, he will be redirected to the localisation server which will redirect the user to his/her home institute. The home institue will check again if the user is authenticated. If this is note the case, the user needs to log in with his credentials. Finally the user will be redirected to the protected resource.

The following services are available to members of the TU Berlin via Shibboleth authentication of the DFN-AAI.
