What else does IDM do at UNL?
Aside from managing user accounts, we also look at how to reduce the number of logins and passwords you have to remember, how many times you have to log in, and how to keep your identity as safe as possible.
To reduce the number of times that you have to log in, we provide some Single Sign-On (SSO) services. For on-campus services, we use the open-source CAS tool, and for off-campus services, we use Shibboleth. When a service uses one of these SSO services, you can pass between different web tools that use SSO and not have to log in again.
One way that we try to reduce the number of logins and passwords that you have to know is by forming relationships with partner organizations (like Educause, NIH, or the NSF), using Shibboleth through the InCommon Federation, so that you can use your UNL login and password to access resources that they provide. It makes life easier for the service provider because they can just trust that someone from UNL is a real person, and it makes life a lot more convenient for you.
