14:48 bswork What is the best way to create a redundant shibboleth idp environment? We are thinking about buying a load balancer or would clustering be better?
14:48 bswork That said are their any software based load balancers that would work well for this?

18:55 JuanDaugherty is there a slack channel or something (other than a list forum)?
19:03 pdurbin I don't think so.
19:04 pdurbin Well, I shouldn't say that.
19:04 pdurbin I don't know if there is a Slack channel or not.

19:10 bswork Any best practices on making an IDP implementation redundant. Is a load balancer the best way? Is clustering better? Hardware or software load balancer?
19:13 JuanDaugherty pdurbin, I was about to create a login identity on the shibboleth wiki
19:13 JuanDaugherty my question is simple
19:14 JuanDaugherty facebook, google, and linked in are the identity providers I want to use first
19:14 JuanDaugherty and it appears I would have to set them up independently of shibboleth
19:15 JuanDaugherty which is OK, just want to be clear I'm not missing something
19:16 JuanDaugherty if shibboleth is to be relegated to a edu/secondary tier in effect I don't have a problem with that as these would be users I'd likely grant higher privilege
19:16 JuanDaugherty i know you are not a shibd developer
19:17 JuanDaugherty but I presume you've been working with it for some time and can speak to such a query
19:17 JuanDaugherty that is I seem to recall your saying you weren't
19:19 pdurbin Our app (Dataverse) uses SAML (Shibboleth) for universities and such and OAuth for Google and other OAuth providers: http://guides.dataverse.org/en/4.8.5/installation/config.html#auth-modes-local-vs-remote-vs-both
19:20 pdurbin I don't understand what SAML/Shibboleth has to do with identity providers from Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn because I thought they all use OAuth instead.
19:20 pdurbin bswork: sorry, I've only used the SP, on the IdP. Maybe try the shib mailing list.
19:20 JuanDaugherty https://dataverse.org/about i presume
19:21 bswork OK. What does your gut tell you?
19:21 bswork Thanks for replying
19:22 pdurbin JuanDaugherty: The page in the guides I linked to has more relevant info than the about page.
19:22 pdurbin bswork: I would suggest trying a software load balancer before investing in hardware
19:23 bswork pdurbin: Have any suggestions?
19:25 pdurbin HAProxy is the one I've been meaning to learn. I would ask in #crimsonfu if I were you.
19:34 JuanDaugherty pdurbin, ty
19:35 pdurbin sure
