16:33 kuwv Hello

16:36 kuwv I'm interested in using opensaml in fedora.
16:38 kuwv Does opensaml have user openssl or is that only shibboleth?
16:38 kuwv s/user//
16:56 pdurbin kuwv: there are RPMs for shibboleth
16:56 kuwv Hi Phillip
16:57 pdurbin I use them on CentOS. Not sure if there are any for Fedora.
16:57 kuwv I'm aware.
16:57 kuwv I use fedora also.
16:57 kuwv sorry centos.
16:57 kuwv I'm currious about opensaml though.
16:57 pdurbin opensaml the java library?
16:58 kuwv Yes
16:58 kuwv Does it implement ssl or not?
16:58 pdurbin um
16:58 pdurbin from what I understand SAML can travel over SSL or plain HTTP
16:59 kuwv Yeah, I read that.
16:59 kuwv I wasn't sure if opensaml work that way or not.
16:59 kuwv The reason is NSS.
17:00 kuwv I'm interested in opensaml because I'd like to do something with nss and not openssl.
17:02 pdurbin I forget what NSS is.
17:02 kuwv Network Security Services
17:02 kuwv It's the original SSL library.
17:03 * pdurbin looks at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Security_Services
17:03 pdurbin ah
17:03 kuwv openssl was built from the specification of nss and one of the libraries but doesn't implement pki.
17:04 kuwv Or implements RSA in a different way.
17:04 pdurbin ok
17:05 kuwv Redhat realm pretty much prefers nss.
17:05 kuwv How difficult is it to implement an IdP in java from the opensaml-java?
17:06 pdurbin kuwv: maybe ask whartung in #rest
17:06 kuwv Ok one sec. I'm going to switch clients.

17:08 kuwv Phillip: Who did I need to speak with again?
17:08 pdurbin kuwv: maybe ask whartung in #rest
17:10 kuwv Thanks, I'm asking now.
17:11 kuwv Why is shibboleth used by universities over other providers?
17:12 pdurbin kuwv: what other providers?
17:14 kuwv Say like openam
17:14 kuwv openam originally was part of SunDS and RHDS during the Sun days.
17:16 pdurbin yep. stood up openam once. I used to hang out in http://irclog.perlgeek.de/openam
17:16 pdurbin seemed complicated
