What is the benefit of this type of authentication?
Using .htaccess file with SAML Attribute can help you to secure your web content. It helps you to allow only users who have the specified SAML attribute value to access your protected web content. For example, you can allow only GT employees (cas-attribute eduPersonAffiliation:employee) to access a specific web directory on your website.

On April 1, 2017, Google discontinued sales of the Google Site Search. All new purchases and renewals must take place before this date. Google Site Search will be completely shut down by April 1, 2018.
Existing Custom Search accounts remain available but users may be unable to set up new ones. It is unclear if this sunset of GSS will take GCS with it; but it is likely. Site owners should investigate other options.
For Drupal 7 sites it is fairly simple to replace the GSA (Google Search Appliance) with GCS (Google Custom Search); a no-cost ad free service for non-profits. This is super simple on Drupal Express Sites. The instructions below will provide a near match to the default search that the GSA (Google Search Appliance) provides today and after the GSA is decommissioned.
Google Custom Search – what is it and how do you set one up?
Google Site Search is specifically designed for businesses looking to create a
highly customizable Google-like site search solution for your website (or websites).
A SaaS solution with no hardware or software required, Google Site Search:
• Brings Google’s industry-leading relevance and powerful search experience to your site
• Deploys easily and is easy to administer
• Provides multiple customization options for search results appearance and attributes
It should be emphasized that Google Site Search creates a separate index for
the website or websites you specify. It does not influence or impact the ranking
of your website on Google.com.
You should be logged in to a Google account before you start the process. If you do not have an account you should create one and login. Please ensure your Google account is tied to a Departmental Alias and not to an individual employee's account.
