NetID / Shibboleth authentication

Information on using the shib_auth module for UW NetID authentication is available in this KnowledgeBase document: Drupal NetID Authentication. The information is based on my own experience on a few hosts, building on some initial work by colleagues in the School of Pharmacy.
