    The following screenshots give a preliminary view of what header values populated by the AuthN events will look like from within Drupal. The values of headers in these screenshots are NOT meant to be taken as examples. A more complete set of illustrations/examples will be provided to guide a Drupal developer through the process of AuthN and access to shib_auth headers after configuration is completed on

    From left to right:

    1. This is the front page of a fresh Drupal install, with debug mode turned on
    2. Here's a better look at headers of interest, esp. the $_SERVER headers
    3. Here the persistent-id header value is highlighted; this is the attribute value that would be hashed (SHA-256) before being passed to the BSP; the value shown is NOT meant to suggest what actual values will look like once the AuthN machinery is fully wired-up
