    • Your browser must have cookies enabled to support single sign-on; many supported services will not work correctly if you disable cookies
  • CAS single sign-on process handles authentication only: Authentication proves that you are who you say you are by asking you to provide your UniqueID and MUnet password
    • CAS does not handle authorization to individual services: Authorization determines whether you are allowed to access a web-based service or application
  • When integrating CAS authentication with your service or application, your site must redirect the user to the CAS login URL You must pass the return URL to your Miami site, so that CAS knows where to redirect authenticated users
