B-centre assessment round 16
Shibboleth SP security fix
All Shibboleth Service Providers (< version 3) are strongly recommended to address an open redirect vulnerability by adding the redirectLimit="exact" attribute-value pair to the Sessions element in the shibboleth2.xml config file, as explained here. Thanks to Martin Wynne for bringing this to our attention!
New FCS endpoints
The French ORTOLANG and Cocoon centre and the Portuguese PORTULAN centre have recently added an endpoint to the Federated Content Search. You can now search within the content of their resources through the Content Search Engine.
Between 26 and 30 October the CLARIN website will be migrated from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. To perform this quite large migration, the website will be in read-only mode during this period, so no new content will appear. The layout will remain the same for now – changes are planned for later this year.
Virtual Collection Registry update
Link Checker request
The Link Checker is to be enhanced with better recognition of login pages, to return a more correct status code (restricted access) for login pages that return an HTTP 200 status code.
If you wish to add your login page URL, just do a pull request with an edit on the list.txt file, adding your login page URL (or discovery service) as a new line. Thanks for your support!
