F-ticks statistics (pilot) - beta

IdP configuration

Shibbolethi IdP (1.3 and higher):

In order to setup a F-TICKS forwarding for an IDP implemented using Shibboleth IDP v3, one needs to configure the following lines in conf/idp.properties.

idp.fticks.federation=[Federation name]
idp.fticks.algorithm=SHA-256
idp.fticks.salt=[salt]
idp.fticks.loghost=[ip]
idp.fticks.logport=514

  • For [Federation name] use your federation's acronym
  • For [salt] use random number that SHOULD not change (it will be used for hashing private info)
  • For [ip] use IP address of your federation's F-ticks aggregator or 90.147.166.156 if you are sending f-ticks directly to global collector
