Single Sign On

Ithaca College provides Single Sign-On capabilities through integration with various College systems (see right sidebar) via SAML2 capable Identity Provider (IDP). Our IDP is provided by an open source software package called Shibboleth. Shibboleth is a web-based technology that implements the HTTP/POST, artifact, and attribute push profiles of SAML, including both Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP) components.  Ithaca College supports Single Sign-On via Shibboleth due to its extensive use across universities, but may offer integration with other platforms if integration with this platform is not an option for your application. We have also integrated our IDP metadata with the InCommon Federation
