Single Sign-On now accepts employees’ credentials from a growing list of TAMU System Members’ authentication services as valid authorization data.
This feature allows an employee to log into their SSO menu using their campus/agency’s Shibboleth credentials. For example, employees using the Texas A&M University NetID or Corpus Christi Island ID will be able to log on with these credentials rather than their UIN.
Of course, SSO’s standard UIN/Password logon will continue to operate normally.
The SSO login page will be updated to display links to the participating System Members’ authentication service sites in a panel similar to the sample shown below.
To logon using campus/agency credentials, simply click the appropriate link and log on. You will be sent back to the SSO menu after being authenticated by the campus/agency service.
Participating System Members
At this time, selected campus/agency authentication services are supported by SSO.
System Members’ IT departments must register their authentication service to participate in SSO’s alternate logon program. An essential element of this registration is that the Members’ authentication service must be members of The Texas A&M University System’s Identity Management Federation.
If your institution is not shown in the list of alternate authentication service providers, please contact your local IT department so they are aware of employees’ interest in this program.
We expect to add several new authentication service sites to the list in the coming months.
