Our email group is evaluating migrating faculty/staff mail to
Microsoft's Office 365 product, which evidently can do federated
authentication either with Microsoft's ADFS or shibboleth. As we have
already deployed shibboleth, I was asked to look at whether it would be
feasible to use for this purpose.
I was wondering if anyone had already done this? From reviewing the
This seems very kludgy 8-/. Despite apparently belonging to Incommon, it
appears Microsoft requires individual and separate configuration of
metadata for the office 365 SP. They also insist on a unique relying
party and their own special attributes.
My initial inclination is to just tell them to go ahead and deploy ADFS
and avoid contaminating my current nice clean shibboleth configuration
:). I would though be curious for any feedback from people that have
tried to implement this.
