  • We established a pilot proxy to be used by libraries to give access to restricted content no matter whether the (content) provider supports SAML or not. This approach is not new and offered as a solution called EZ-proxy but apparently many libraries are not aware of its existence or are not aware of the fact that it can be used to bridge SAML to IP
  • By adding functionality to handle access requests from walk-in users (citizen scientists) we can kill two birds with one stone
  • To address the many to many SAML interactions topic some library consortia are dealing with, we piloted the suitability of a an IdP/SP proxy solution. With this approach we aim te reduce complexity and at the same time provide a way to "brand" the access gateways which may improve the perceived trust and usability of users who want to access library resources.
