EasyDeposit now supports Shibboleth

Just a quick note to say that the latest release of EasyDeposit now supports Shibboleth authentication. Or to be precise, it supports any form of authentication where the user’s details are passed via HTTP headers / environment variables. This includes other SSO (Single Sign-On) systems such as CoSign.

To use, select the ‘ssologin’ step as the first step.  Edit the settings to state which headers to look at, and it should all work.  Of course you’ll need to configure your web server and single sign-on system to protect your EasyDeposit installation directory.
