Description Shawn Iwinski 2016-07-21 16:20:47 UTC
Spec URL:


SimpleSAMLphp is an award-winning [1] application written in native PHP that
deals with authentication. The project is led by UNINETT [2], has a large user
base [3], a helpful user community [4] and a large set of external
contributors [5]. The main focus of SimpleSAMLphp is providing support for:

* SAML 2.0 as a Service Provider (SP) [6]
* SAML 2.0 as an Identity Provider (IdP) [7]

However, it also supports some other identity protocols and frameworks, such
as Shibboleth 1.3, A-Select, CAS, OpenID, WS-Federation or OAuth, and is easily
extendable [8], so you can develop your own modules if you like.

With the memcache session handler, SimpleSAMLphp scales pretty well. A
replication layer is built upon memcache, such that an unlimited number
of SimpleSAMLphp web front-ends can work with a back-end matrix of memcache
servers with both replication (fail-over) and load-balancing.

SimpleSAMLphp is tested with several other federation software implementations.
Among others; Shibboleth 1.3, Shibboleth 2.2, PingID, Sun Federation Manager,
Sun Federated Access Manager, Sun Access Manager, mod_mellon, CAS, etc. If
someone discovers incompatibility issues, we try to sort them out as fast as
possible if reported properly through the issue tracker.

Successor review request to bug 800867

Marking as NotReady until I can get some more testing completed.  Test copr:

Comment 2 François Kooman 2017-05-30 12:31:11 UTC
There is an issue with the autoloader it seems:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'SimpleSAML_Error_Assertion' not found in /usr/share/simplesamlphp/www/_include.php:35 Stack trace: #0 /usr/share/simplesamlphp/www/index.php(3): require_once() #1 {main} thrown in /usr/share/simplesamlphp/www/_include.php on line 35

(Tested on Fedora 25 using your COPR package, 1.14.14-1.fc25).
