myCampus Single Sign-On Overview
The growth of internet usage and proliferation of service s and software at colleges and Universities has produced an increasingly complex services environment. Demands by increasingly sophisticated users among students and faculty, a need for cutting edge tools to support teaching an d learning, and pressures to provide cost and efficiency savings through automat ion and online self-service have resulted in a massive increase in the number of online services which an average user may have access to.
As these services have proliferated, so have demands to manage authentication and security multiplied. Reduced//Single-sign On (SSO) systems have emerged as a key requirement in the modern distributed computing environment.. These systems exist to address a number of key institutional pain points:
To support these needs, CampusEAI has engineered a comprehensive security and SSO platform into the myCampus portal, built on best-of b reed open-source and community developed technologies, and targeted at easing integration with systems common in Higher-Education.
The myCampus SSO architecture consists of a number of core components, which allow for a variety of strategies for SSO integration. The major components are:
This SSO architecture forms a core component of the overall myCampus Service architecture, (illustrate d below), enabling not only direct SSSO integration to services, but also providing a base capability which is built on by other services like dashboards, summaries, and notifications too provide “actionable intelligence” paired with an easy escalation into a full-service, native web client.
