    4/28 & 5/12 - Simpler configuration - Default to better cookie settings - No more privileged user - NativeSPConfigurationChanges in wiki.shibboleth.net www.it.ufl.edu
  10. - InCommon's Assurance Program Good security and identity practices help

    ensure that an individual using an electronic credential is the person you think it is. Once security and practices are put in place, we need some custom code to lookup assurance in our database. IdP silver login handler (2013) www.it.ufl.edu

    - UF will enable this in production on 4/21, beta IdP from 4/15 (Mon.) - Interesting configuration changes on our end... www.it.ufl.edu

    these from UFAD using DirSync API - Probably requires some cleanup - Hoping for 15 minute latency - Usual problems of representing a tree structure in a list www.it.ufl.edu
