NetID Login Service

The NetID Login Service is a technology that provides enterprise-wide authentication for on-campus web applications using your NetID credential. To learn more about what a NetID is please look at Document 20281 is unavailable at this time..

The NetID Login Service is implemented by using the Shibboleth project from the Internet2 foundation. You can find more about Internet2, Shibboleth, and other projects at their website.

Shibboleth uses a technology called Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) to verify user identity using an Identity Provider (IdP) service to authenticate users to a Service Provider (SP). The IdP service is run by the university and SPs are web applications that want to use NetIDs for authentication.

To get started on setting up your own SP to utilitze the NetID Login Service please start here: NetID Login Service: WebISO.
