14:59 srg Hi all
14:59 srg I'm trying to understand what exactly Apache's mod_shib and shibd do on a linux SP.
15:00 srg Is this correct? shibd processes the SAML and talks to mod_shib.    mod_shib generates the HTTP headers. The web app checks those headers and allows access or not.
15:02 srg HTTP headers supplied by the client in Apache/PHP are prefixed with HTTP. Like HTTP_USER_AGENT. However, mod_shib creates EPPN headers (not HTTP_EPPN), so that the client cannot spoof the headers
