SAML federation authentication

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • French universities have a Shibboleth SAML identity federation allowing to authenticate users from other universities from their home Identity providers. We would like to use this federation with our Openstack instance.

  • We've seen this documentation on the Openstack web site.

  • It's seems here that there are some possibilities to achieve our goal with keystone. But before trying to POC this thing, we would like to know : are these kind of configuration are supported by Red Hat Openstack version ?

  • If not, is there any other way to do that ? I make clear that we don't want to connect to a single distant IDP, but to an existant SAML federation of multiples Shibboleth IDP.


  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.1 (RHOSP)
