Single Sign-On is a method to consolidate user sign in for multiple internet applications into a one-time authentication. Authentication occurs by the application referring to the Central Authentication Service (CAS) which validates the user identity with the BYU Net ID and password at trusted entry points. When users sign in with their credentials using CAS, they will be signed-in to each Internet application utilizing CAS. CAS Single Sign-On is the preferred authentication resource for BYU.
To use CAS with a web-based application, visit https://www.apereo.org/projects/cas. Follow the information and documentation provided to tie the Internet application authentication into CAS. To point your website to use BYU's CAS system, use the following parameters:
Note: If users desire, they may register their web-based application with BYU to receive updates. Please ues the Identity Management page and select the corresponding under the Order | Modify menu in the top right.
Because of the open nature of CAS, those using it should be added to a campus Web Masters email list for information concerning changes, updates and announcements. In order to submit technical questions concerning CAS directly to the campus community. Contact Brent Harker to be added to this email list.
