Generating eduPersonPrincipalName from your internal directory

This page is intended to give you some ideas about how to generate an eduPersonPrincipal attribute that is useful to SAFIRE by reusing existing unique user identifiers from your internal directory services. What’s shown below are SimpleSAMLphp config snippets, but the ideas translate to pretty much all identity provider software. If you’re not using SimpleSAMLphp, hopefully the comments help you understand what is going on. All the authproc filters shown here are documented in SimpleSAMLphp’s docs.
