Authentication

Service Description: 
Authentication allows you to establish the identity and authenticity of a person, computer, or application.  Authentication often involves verifying something the user knows (e.g., a UW NetID and password) or something the user has (e.g., a security token or private key).
 
UW Information Technology supports several enterprise authentication services to help you enable secure access to Web sites, online information, desktop computers, walk-in labs, and other resources, while adhering to UW information security policies.

 

Service Options: 

Authentication service options include:

  • Kerberos - Provides UW NetID authentication using the Kerberos network authentication system; also known as the "u.washington.edu" Kerberos realm.
  • Web Authentication Services - Provides UW NetID authentication and single sign-on (SSO) to participating Web sites; provides a trusted Web site (weblogin.washington.edu) for entering and verification of user credentials; supports "federation" via InCommon and SAML protocols; software options include Pubcookie and Shibboleth (preferred) for Apache and Microsoft IIS Web servers.
  • Token Authentication Service - Provides multi-factor authentication using Entrust tokens as a 2nd authentication factor for access to more sensitive UW applications.
  • UW Windows Infrastructure - Provides an Active Directory forest for Kerberos and NTLM authentication for all UW NetIDs; also known as the "netid.washington.edu" Kerberos realm.
