  25. 25. When to use EZ, Shibb or other
  26. 26. Edugate on Campus(Assuming a service supports Shibboleth)Use Shibboleth...• if you intend to take advantage of fine grained access control• If the service offers personalisation and persistent sessions (e.g. search results, search preferences etc).• if the content of the service is frequently accessed as a result of a Google search rather than a search of your Opac (thus bypassing your EZproxy URLs).• if Shibboleth is frequently used to access other services like student email and you want to avail of the single-sign-on with no re-authentication prompts
  27. 27. Edugate on CampusSome services do not support a Shibboleth login yet.• Use EZproxy for services with no personalisation features and for services that don’t feature in Google results, and for services that don’t support Shibboleth• Use EZproxy with Shibboleth for these non personalised services if your campus uses Shibboleth for other frequently accessed services (thus benefiting from single-sign-on)• Use Shibboleth if any of the reasons listed on the previous slide fit
