UMNEWS – EASY implements new sign-on procedure for online access

On Monday, March 21, Information Technology (IT) enhanced single sign-on by implementing CaneID Authentication Service (CAS). The CAS will allow students to access multiple password-protected Web services after logging in once using their CaneID and password on a central authentication server. Referred to as single sign-on, the service lets students access multiple systems without having to re-enter a username and password each time. One of the first services to use CAS will be EASY. UMSIS will use CAS in the near future, and other services will follow.
