OK, I never understood why these changes were needed, but now I get it. Im
used to not having the anonymously accessible information page, if you aren't
authenticated, you aren't allowed in at all. One of the other enablers of
this is to set:


in the custom so that once the user is logged in, and looking
at the info page, it says "Start", instead of "Log in". Btw, I have a
directory in the UI: grouperExternal/public which can easily not be protected
by authn (if you have external user registrations, it wont work if its not),
maybe we should change the info page to be a static HTML page there, or
something else (dynamic page there). Well, if the UI is redone in 2.2 we can
worry about it then :)

Further to Chris' email, at Newcastle University we have also Shibbolised our
Grouper install. The following page documents some of the steps that we took
to Shib protect both the main Admin UI and the Lite UI.

I hope they are helpful.
