Technology Requirements / Authentication (Web)

Tags TechReq

Current State Specification

Miami uses Microsoft Active Directory 2012, OpenLDAP, Shibboleth (InCommon federation), and Central Authentication Service (CAS) for authentication/Single Sign-on. See the following for Miami's authentication preferences:

  • Best: CAS; Shibboleth (with InCommon membership preferred)
  • Better: OAuth
  • Acceptable: Custom SSO service that doesn't expose our user credentials
  • Undesirable: Credential sync, direct LDAP (OpenLDAP) or AD integration; Credential management API (requires integration with Miami's IAM platform)
  • Unacceptable: Independent password store
