Web single sign-on (Web SSO) authentication services are used to verify a person's identity when they sign into a password-protected website. Once a person signs into the Web SSO system, they can seamlessly access other Web-SSO-protected websites without being prompted for their password again. UC Davis currently offers two Web SSO services: CAS and Shibboleth.
Duo multi-factor authentication is a system that requires a second piece of information or “factor” (such as a temporary code that is created for you) before you can log in to a site or service. Using multi-factor authentication improves privacy and security.
The Identity Access Management (IAM) suite collects data from the campus identity sources to arrive at an authoritative identity record for every UC Davis affiliate. The IAM system uses this data to inform account provisioning and provides the data to campus clients as needed.
