We are running the Shibboleth IdP v3.3.1 which supports the CAS v3 protocol.
All University of Maryland College Park (UMDCP) students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. Additionally employees and affiliates of UMES, UMCES, & USMO can authenticate.
For certain sites, former students and/or associates (guests) can authenticate. Please contact IT Service Desk if you desire this functionality.
CAS will return the user's Directory ID. Additional attributes are available upon request.
See the CAS(Opens in a new window) web site (note that we currently support CAS 1/2). In particular, you will want to check out the clients(Opens in a new window) which have already been implemented in a variety of environments/languages.
Here is a little presentation(Opens in a new window) on how a CAS authentication works.
See the CAS Protocol(Opens in a new window) specification for details on the parameters.
