Single Sign-On (SSO) allows users to log in just once to access multiple protected websites and resources. Shibboleth is the open-source software that CSU uses for single sign-on to authenticate and authorize individual access of protected online resources. CSU resources that are SSO protected include Canvas, RAMweb, TimeClock Plus, Kuali, and more.
An example of what you’ll see when accessing an SSO protected page is shown below:
When you attempt to access a protected resource, and have not yet logged in, you will be forwarded to the single sign-on page for login. The URL of the login page should begin with “https://shibidp.colostate.edu/”
Do not bookmark this login page URL. It has no information about the destination page and will not work again.
Log in with your CSU credentials:
Students, faculty, staff, and associates log in with their eID/NetID and password
Community library patrons log in with their 9-character Community ID: review the Libraries: Community Patrons, Alumni & Guests page or contact CSU Libraries for more information
Your browser must be set to accept all cookies in order for you to log in
Select the “Disable Single Sign-On for this session” checkbox if you only want to log in to that individual application
Your CSU single sign-on session remains active after log out from a service until you completely exit your web browser or you may be automatically logged out if your session times out after a few hours.. Close all windows and tabs in your browser to completely end your session.
