A-Select module for SimpleSAMLphp

This module allows you to use A-Select (or any service that understands the A-Select 1.5 protocol) to authenticate users in SimpleSAMLphp.


Note that this module does not enable you to use SimpleSAMLphp as a server for authenticating users in A-Select aware applications. In other words, it turns your SimpleSAMLphp installation into an A-Select client, not into an A-Select server.


A .tar.gz is available in the Debian download directory.

Debian/Ubuntu users: put this line:

deb http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian stretch uvt

in a file called /etc/apt/sources.list.d/non-gnu.list and run the following commands to import the signing key and install the module:

sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/non-gnu.gpg https://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian/uvt_key.gpg
sudo apt update
sudo apt install simplesamlphp-aselect


This module is based on earlier work by Hans Zandbelt. It used to be included in SimpleSAMLphp, until it was decided to no longer ship any modules and restrict the SimpleSAMLphp release to just the core product.
