Let the right one in: Custom Authentication in JupyterHub
05-10, 10:30–11:25 (Europe/Paris), Room 1

JupyterHub provides a customizable authentication system for managing user access, but its default authentication methods may not always be suitable for all organizations. This talk will discuss the capabilities of JupyterHub for custom authentication, and will provide examples and best practices for customizing the user environment based on Identity providers (IdPs) and attributes hosted with them. The talk will dive into managing custom authentication with JupyterHub in kubernetes through helm charts and using various IdPs to integrate JH into larger organizations.

Highlights of the talk:

  • A brief introduction to the JupyterHub authentication module
  • Integrating SAML, AD/LDAP and Oauth2 with JupyterHub
  • Benefits of SSO authentication in JupyterHub, including improved security and user experience
  • Best practices for customizing the spawning of the user environment based on the authentication process
