Developer SIG: PennKey Auth in Python / Django

| 2:00pm to 3:30pm Bits & Pieces, Room 306 Sansom Place West

PennKey authentication is made possible with ISC’s Shibboleth service, an implementation of the widely used Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Steve Turoscy of Wharton Computing and Matt Schleindl is Information Systems and Computing will demonstrate how PennKey authentication can be used in Django.  Both a pure Python solution, tied to Django’s authentication and users packages and a NodeJS / Django REST solution will be demonstrated. These approaches greatly simplify the implementation for developers, as they are web server agnostic, and don’t require installing any additional operating system packages.
