Nginx with Shibboleth (FastCGI authorizer) support updated to 1.6

Note

This was discussed in a previous post. Various changes have happened since then, improving the customisation process and updating for newer versions of Nginx and associated add-on modules.

I’ve updated the custom version of Nginx that supports operating with a Shibboleth SP to version 1.6.0, now that this version has become the lastest stable version.

The build scripts located at https://github.com/jcu-eresearch/nginx-custom-build have been updated, along with the patches required to make the Shibboleth integration happen due to the changes in the Auth Request Module now being built into Nginx since version 1.5.4. Some other minor adjustments were required to keep patches up with module changes in Nginx’s core.

See https://github.com/jcu-eresearch/nginx-custom-build/blob/master/CHANGES.rst for a complete listing of changes. Feel free to watch the repository for changes and updates!
