16:26 balo revolution! :)
16:38 * pdurbin look at http://irclog.greptilian.co​m/javaee/2014-02-02#i_55607
16:38 pdurbin balo: so you're here to talk about sso in general? :)
16:39 pdurbin I will say that shibboleth has pretty good brand recognition. At least in higher ed people know what it is
16:39 pdurbin I think "single-sign-on" written out means something to people but out of context I'm not sure "sso" does
16:42 balo because shibboleth is not widely used by compaines :) it used by educational institutes like universities or libraries
16:43 balo like the international eduid project
16:43 balo companies using oracle access manager or some other proprietary solutions
16:44 balo imho shibboleth is not quite ready for production use :) it crashes *a lot*. and there is no commercial support behind it afaik
16:47 pdurbin eduid?
16:47 balo http://www.eduid.hu/en/
16:48 balo but i think it's part of an international university federation. or it will be :)
16:49 pdurbin balo: you're sure this isn't specific to Hungary?
16:50 balo as i see it, now every country has an own eduid.
16:51 pdurbin I guess
16:51 balo i see plans few years ago for federate the universities across europe
16:52 balo but i think the first step is to federate only in countries :D
16:54 balo maybe those plans were a bit optimistic
17:15 pdurbin I think Switzerland is doing a lot with Shibboleth
