Configuring Shibboleth to Protect Root Level with Tomcat/Apache


This guide will help you configure your Shibboleth application running on Tomcat/Apache under root level. This guide assumes that you are running Apache and Tomcat with mod jk.


For the mod-shib section of the httpd.conf file make sure / is in the Location element.

Code Block
<Location />
  AuthType shibboleth
  require shibboleth

If you application is on root, you are probably routing everything to Tomcat. Thus we must exclude it and let Apache handle the Shibboleth part. We will be using JkUnMount. Add the elements below to the modjk section of the httpd.conf file.

Code Block
JkUnMount /Shibboleth.sso/* worker1
JkUnMount /shibboleth worker1
JkUnMount /shibboleth-sp/* worker1
