NetID Login Service

The NetID Login Service is a group of technologies that provide enterprise-wide authentication and support authorization services. NetID is the username portion of the credentials as well as the branding for the set of services as a whole.


Three base technologies are used to support the NetID Login Service:

At the core, Kerberos provides authentication services directly to kiosks, computers and directory servers as well as the other bridge technologies RADIUS and WebISO. RADIUS provides authentication services to WiscVPN, UWNET Wireless, and various network devices. WebISO provides SAML2 IdP Services to web applications using Shibboleth2. Shibboleth is an Internet2 Middleware Initiative project that has created an architecture and open-source implementation for federated identity-based authentication and authorization infrastructure based on Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).1
