CAS is a Central Authentication Service that lets you login once and then access a variety of web applications. CAS was originally developed at Yale University and is now a JA-SIG project. Here at the University of Saskatchewan, we use CAS to provide single sign-on between PAWS and services such as Blackboard and wikis.
To use CAS, simply login with your Network Services ID, and, when you are finished, please logout and exit your web browser.
If you are a campus web developer and would like to use CAS on your own web site, please see our notes on using CAS.
If you want to know the nitty-gritty detail of how we set up the trust between CAS and PAWS, please see our notes on trusting another CAS server.
