Single Sign-On (SSO), Shibboleth or Central Authentication Service (CAS)

Service Description

Shibboleth provides user authentication services for applications and a single sign-on experience for end users. The UO's Shibboleth Identity Provider (IdP) solution is maintained by Information Services and supports both Shibboleth and CAS integrations. Once you configure your application as a Shibboleth Service Provider (SP), your end users can authenticate using their Duck ID username and password. In some cases, third-party, cloud-based solutions can also be integrated with the Shibboleth IdP.

The requestor provides the SP’s InCommon registered Entity ID or the metadata for their SP. They will configure the SP to rely on one of the following IdP InCommon registered Entity IDs or download and configure the metadata manually.

Prod IdP Entity ID:

The IdP includes both a Production and Test instance. Start by requesting integration between your SP and the Test IdP. Please include the Duck IDs of all team resources that will be testing your SP against the Test IdP. After successful testing, request integration between your SP and the Prod IdP.

When submitting your integration request, you will be able to select the unrestricted attributes you want the IdP to release alongside the assertion. To request access to restricted attributes, please download, print and fill out the "Shibboleth Attribute Request Form". Complete Page 1 and sign and date Page 2.
