Campus Active Directory (CAD) is a BYU implementation of Microsoft Active Directory. It provides a single Active Directory domain that BYU uses to simplify the management of systems and users at the university. Any department may request the creation of an Organizational Unit (OU) into which they may place computers and security groups.
For information and details, see the Campus Active Directory page.
CAS Single Sign-On is a method of consolidating 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.
To use CAS, users will set up single sign-on by going to http://www.jasig.org and using BYU's sign-on parameters.
For details, see the CAS Single Sign-On page.
