Shibboleth: Login Help

How do I log in?

Authentication requires a login with your MFO login details. A big advantage is that the login page is always the same, no matter which service or platform you want to log in to.

Once you have also logged in during a browser session, you no longer need to log in to the following services (single sign-on).

Where do I log in?

You will need to identify yourself as a MFO user on a providers site:

  1. LOGIN: On the providers site, go to where it says 'Login' or 'Sign on'.  This is usually at the top of the page.

  2. Institutional Login: Look for where it says 'institutional login' or 'sign on via your institution':

  3. If prompted, select 'Shibboleth', 'German Higher Education (DFN-AAI)' or 'Germany/German federation':

  4. Select, or search for 'Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut' or 'Oberwolfach'

  5. You should then be given the option to sign on with your MFO Login.

  6. When you log in for the first time, you must consent to certain data being transferred to the publisher (the screen is available in German only). The information transmitted is that you are entitled to sign in and that you are a member of MFO. No other personal data will be transmitted.
