Authentication Services

ASU uses two-factor authentication for all employees (this includes students who are also ASU employees) when authenticating with your ASURITE ID on ASU's websites. At this time, students who are not employed by ASU will only use two-factor to access their direct deposit banking information.

ASU WebAuth

ASU WebAuth is an enterprise-level, university-wide service provided by Information Technology which can be used by web developers for secure authentication to a web application using a person's ASURITE UserID and password. In many cases, this can free a department from having to maintain their own set of user IDs and passwords for each application, or set of applications.

CAS Implementation at ASU

The Central Authentication Service (CAS) is a single sign-on protocol for the web. Its purpose is to permit a user to access multiple applications while providing their credentials (such as userid and password) only once. It also allows web applications to authenticate users without gaining access to a user's security credentials, such as a password.

ASU implements the CAS authentication protocol to allow users to access various web applications across the campus. The open-source authentication makes it simple to integrate 3rd party applications on the campus network.
