CMU web authentication services

Shibboleth Authentication

CMU Web Login

  • Managed by CMU Computing Services
  • Supports authentication for both SCS accounts and Andrew accounts
  • Depending on server configuration, can support authentication for users from other institutions (e.g. Pitt).
  • Uses Shibboleth as the authentication mechanism

Your server must have a SSL certificate signed by a recognized certificate authority in order to use a single sign-on service. If you don't already have a SSL certificate for your web server, see our web server certificate documentation for information on how to obtain a signed certificate.

For information on installing the software for an authentication service on SCS hosts, please contact
