WebSSO Modernization Project Update

Related services: WebSSO

As previously announced, CIT has launched the WebSSO Modernization Project, a program to retire the CUWebAuth web application authentication service and migrate to Shibboleth SAML-based authentication. Overall, the WebSSO Modernization Project will require CUWebAuth website administrators to migrate all CUWebAuth applications to Shibboleth, and CIT will retire related services, including CUWebLogin, KProxy, CUWebAuth portal proxy, and PermitBridge. The service retirement deadline is September 30, 2021. Additionally, no new CUWebAuth service IDs will be created as of October 31, 2020, without security exception approval. View the project timeline.

In November 2020 and February 2021, Identity Management will hold informational Zoom sessions. For interest in an upcoming session, please complete this survey.
